Good Thoughts On Wednesday

My 15 yo son Myles is having surgery Wednesday morning. It's a welcome thing - he had a titanium bar put in his chest to correct a severe defect 2 years ago. It worked wonderfully and fixed all the other problems he was having. We thought it would be in another year but the surgeons surprised us last week and said it can come out now. He's thrilled and feels like he's getting a great Christmas present. I'm thrilled, too, but of course, I'm a little nervous. Even at 6 feet tall, he's still my baby! We have to travel to another city for the surgery so we'll be leaving in the morning.

This isn't a huge deal or life-threatening or anything like that, thankfully. I'm so grateful that we are blessed with great health and not dealing with the heartbreaking and devastating illnesses so many others face everyday. But if any of you think of it on Wednesday, I'd be thankful for good wishes and healing vibes sent our way.

Terry

That's great that it fixed what it was supposed to and great that it can come out early.

So far, it's scheduled for 7 am, Uncle Bob. But elective cases often get bumped for emergencies - and thankfully, we aren't an emergency.

Oh yeah, pacanis, it worked better than we ever even hoped! And after it comes out, he can return to sports and skateboarding and all the other dangerous things boys love to do!
