Twenty-Six

We had a fantastic Christmas {post to come later}, an amazing family trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium {post to come later}, a great behind-the-scenes trip to Sea Lion Cove {post to come later}, and an incredibly hectic first week back to reality {no post to come later}.  I simply cannot believe how fast the holidays have come and gone and quickly the wild rush of reality has set in.

Tomorrow, we'll be heading back to Children's Hospital for surgery number 26.  If you remember, back in March, Noah had a tube placed to correct a clogged tear duct.  And, if you remember, back in September, the tube refused to be removed.

So...here we are...ready for another surgery.  First, Noah's ENT {the very same Dr. who placed Noah's trach} will remove the stubborn tube and follow up with a scope of his trachea.  Next, Noah's Opthomologist will perform a surgery to help alleviate his nystagmus.  Noah's eye shakes back and forth, called nystagmus.  In order to releive some of the quivering, the Dr. will loosen the tendons on one side of his eye and tighten the tendons on the other side.  This will "force" his eye to stay in {relatively} one place.

Please pray for skillful surgeons, patient nurses, fast acting Versed, and a speedy recovery.
