The date is set for 3rd Heart Surgery

Corn Field

Time has lingered for what seems like eternity for the last few months awaiting for this single date to be transparent.  It’s almost like being lost in a corn field and finally making your way to the outer parameters.  We go down to Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital in California for pre-op appointment most likely December 1st, 2014 and surgery will happen the very next day December 2nd.  Both Daddy and I will celebrate our birthday there.  I hope to be awake to smile at him on his, but he says when you awaken that’s when he wants that smile and he sure will be there for that moment.

As like Batman I know I will pull through this with the blessings of God and the watchful eye of my Mommy and Daddy.  This year, for trick or treating I was batman-what a proper theme.  He always seems to get himself into a bunch of fickle spots, but when he thinks it through the good always wins out.  Not too worried yet about myself, really concerned for my parents though.  It must be rough on them planning, hurrying and then waiting and yet nothing more to do batman and captain americabut, hope pray and wait.  I really hope their friends and family will be on there side for now.

He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother.  I hope Big brother, you will be the big brother I will need.  I hope you know it won’t be long and I will be strong enough to wrestle and argue with you-please give me time to heal though.

Well, for now that’s all I have to share.  Better start getting things ready, California-Here we come.  I hope the Ronald McDonald house will remember me and have room.  Oh, how I hope.
