Garett Will Have Surgery...

We found out today that Garett’s CAT scan was normal.  That means that there is no obstruction on the outside of his esophagus.  The blockage is on the inside.  We met with a wonderful and helpful doctor this afternoon who finally took seriously what Garett is dealing with each day.  This doctor is going to do surgery Wednesday morning early.  Until he gets inside he will not know exactly what needs to be done.  
Here are some key things to pray over....
-That the doctor is able to take care of the problem while he is there;
-ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT...that there is no tear in Garett’s esophagus...this would require a lengthy hospital stay and has several risks;
-for a final solution to this...
because tonight, my little Garett cried again because he couldn’t eat, and even though we try to make him nutritious drinks, he is still hungry.  I played Ninja Fruit with him to try to distract him from his hunger.  Still, as he went to bed, he mumbled, “Mommy, I’m still hungry.”  Poor baby, we look to the LORD, and we pray for healing and we thank Him for each of you who chooses to walk this journey with us.  I am grateful!

  6. Lifting up prayers for Garett this morning. After two different occasions of having to have my 2 year old son fast for a day, I can only imagine what you & Garett have been through. It hurts a momma's heart to see her child hurting. I pray that God brings the doctor's discernment and wisdom. I pray for a complete healing and little recovery. I also pray that God's peace covers you during this time. Hang in there!

  7. As I write this, it's surgery day. I will be praying for Garrett. I Believe this will be the thing that brings Healing for him. Also praying for a quick recovery and that your son will start gaining weight at a healthy rate. Hugs to you as you spend this time with your boy. Love, Jo
