No turning back

No Pun Intended! LOL

Please enjoy this sneak peak of our family pics that were taken last week. A HUGE thank you goes out to Nicci from Little Foot Photography !! You did a wonderful job

Today we start the newest venture with Danny, to straighten his back. We are leaving here this afternoon and heading down to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, well actually the Ronald McDonald house tonight. I can't believe that we got a room already, stresser already that has been lifted. Even though it's one night he will be there I have to bring everything for Lil Man. So the packing has begun. I'm almost finished :)
The real fun begins already at midnight when all his feeding/eating stops. Then I will need to get up at 4:30am to give him all of his morning meds and get myself ready. We are due at the hospital at 6am to get him prep'd for surgery and do some labs to have his blood matched with their blood bank because it's a given he will require units of blood during surgery. Surgery is to begin at 7:30am with the ENT's going in first to bronc him and do a serious ear cleaning. Then the to get rid of the turning back, or the best that they can. The surgery will be anywhere from 7-10 hours. sigh.
I will keep you all posted as the day progress's and when I get updates from the OR. Thanks for your positive vibes and following our journey. I means alot to us!

He's having a 7-10 hour surgery and they are only keeping him one night?????? That just doesn't make sense to me. Most people who have major back surgery stay multiple days while they manage pain and make sure all systems are functioning properly..Don't leave unless you feel it's OK...
