Update on Baby S

To keep everyone updated on the progress of her tests and surgery...

The Cat Scan was supposed to be yesterday and Dr. appointment today, however those have been changed to next week. It appears they will be switching doctors because the Neurosurgeon they have been working with is not very familiar with this type of surgery and of course when your child is having a major surgery, you want the best surgeon for the job. They have found a husband/wife neurosurgical team that has performed this surgery at least 300 times on other children including one surgery on their own son. This change in doctors might continue to delay the scheduling of tests and the surgery...but they are not concerned because her case is fairly mild. Most babies have this surgery between 8 and 10 months of age and have minor pain afterwards.

God works wonders. I say doctors that would perform this surgery on their own child is good enough for me. Prayers are already working.
