Ethan's doctor appointment went well yesterday - all of his counts from his blood work came back great (praise the Lord!!)! And, I was able to show the doctor the terrible issues we are having with Ethan's central line (tubing coming out of his chest) and how awful the skin around the bandage has become. The soonest appointment we could get to have the line removed is tomorrow afternoon. I'm very excited about this! However, I'm nervous too.... because his surgery is set for late tomorrow afternoon, and he cannot eat after 9:00 tomorrow morning. This is not going to be pleasant.... It's a simple surgery to remove the tubes, but anesthesia is still necessary. We'd be grateful for your prayers for his frustration while he can't eat, as well as your prayers for the actual procedure. It will be so nice to have his chest free and clear of any tubes and finally be able to dress him in normal shirts - AND - give him a full bath!! We've only been able to sponge bathe him so as to not get the bandaged area wet... but soon we can splish-splash all we want!!
Thank you for your prayers for us tomorrow (Wednesday)!
