Surgery Rescheduled

Noah's surgery has been rescheduled for Thursday, August 14th.

If that date sounds familiar to you, it's because it's his first birthday! What a way to celebrate the day!

But, we're having his birthday party the Saturday before so he'll still get to celebrate.

BTW: I scheduled his party for the Saturday before because our good friends' 4-month-old daughter is having surgery, also on Noah's birthday. She was born with sagittal craniosynostosis. That means that the sutures in her skull were already hardened before she was born. In other words, her skull has hardened already, so the plates don't move to accommodate the growth of her brain. She's going to have a surgery to open up the sutures, then she'll have to wear a special helmet for about a year. There are a team of surgeons here in San Antonio who pioneered a less invasive form of this procedure - and they invented the special helmet she'll wear - so she's in very good hands. But, do remember her in your prayers!
