Back to this surgery...this surgery will be a cranial vault remodeling. Jack's surgery team will cut open his skull and make room for his continued brain growth. Dr. Fearon is concerned that pressure inside Jack's skull is pushing it upward. We need to relieve the pressure before it does any damage to his brain. It's hard to believe we are even talking about this. For the most part, Jack seems fine. He is continuing to grow and develop. He does complain of pain every now and then but isolating the location is tricky with his still limited verbal expression.
He's old enough and verbal enough this time that he's heard all the hushed conversations and told us, "Let's go hospital." He doesn't seem scared or worried or nervous.
David and I, on the other hand, have been scared, worried, and nervous. At the moment, God has graciously reminded me of how he has provided so far and I feel peace.
I continue to be in prayer as October 23 grows closer.
