Day +142- surgery news!

Yay! I have good news! Daylon has been put on the surgery schedule for 7:30am tomorrow!! I'm so happy to have this done with once and for all! Thanks to the antibiotic drips, Daylon's fever is gone. He's been fussy off and on most of the afternoon, but typically just before one of his pain meds is due.There's debate between the staff whether there's fatty tissue or puss coming out of some deeper parts of the sore. As of this morning, the cultures taken from the sore were still peneding...the lab is slow on the weekend. The biggest concern for tomorrow is intubating him.Last time he was intubated, they said that there was so much scar tissue that they couldn't fit the camera down and had to do a blind intubation. In the process, they injured his throat. While I know that tomorrows intubation will also be blind, I pray that no harm will be done.
On a whole other topic, can I just say how AMAZING you guys are. I've read the comments that throughout the day as they have come in and they've helped to lift my spirits so much! Thank you for that! I feel so much better today! :)
One last bit that I forgot to mention:it snowed on Friday night 5-6inches (depends on the weather person you listen to)! Crazy,huh?! Back home it's supposed to have been in the 80's...what a difference! The sun is setting now at 3:45-ish now too! Winter is coming!
I'll try to post tomorrow, even if it's quick, to let you all know how things went.sweet dreams

PS- sorry for another pictureless post. Still no computer, but I did figure out how to post on my phone! :)

I'm so thankful Daylon gets on the road to tummy recovery tomorrow! I can't imagine how uncomfortable he has been. I'll be sending good thoughts and hoping for an easy intubation and quick extubation tomorrow.

YEAH! That is awesome. Glad I didn't have to fly out there to throw down with the medical staff (also that dialysis team is still on my list!) Hope everything is going well right now. Saying lots of prayers. Love you guys!

I have a feeling when he can start eating and drinking orally, everything will fall into place, including his kidney function! From my fingers to God's ears, right? God Bless you all and give you strength and peace during these tough times.

Wishing Daylon a successful surgery. My prayers are with you. Thank you so very much for the butterflies. It was beautiful releasing the butterflies and sending Bella to heaven to be with the angels. Ali's comment as the butterflies were released were "Go Bella Go! Just perfect.

Love,

Just getting caught up on the blog and found out about the surgery. I'm praying for the surgery and recovery. Praying the Holy Spirit surround you with peace. Also praying for the medical community working with him.

It is so aggravating when certain ones only see him in their specialty - so glad you have Drs. Tolar and Wagner who have all of Daylon's health and care in mind when making decisions for him.
