Update from John

I tried to wait to post an update until I got an email but I just couldn't. I knew I should have waited. I just got this update from my brother-in-law. It makes me smile. I just love the way he explains everything.

Thanks again for all the prayers!

Email Update From John --

hi

ok, sarah had her surgery today,

guy version: hole was fixed, all is going good, should be home in a few days, won't know if it worked for a few months.

girl version: sarah had about a 2 hour surgery, the doc was able to find and fix a cleft right below the voice box, took about 2 stitches that will dissolve on their own in about a week or so all the repairs were done with a really small probe down the throat. The ENT is confident that this will fix Sarah's aspiration problems, but since we are only hopeful that this was the cause, we can only be hopeful that it works. We will not take a swallow test for about 2 months to tell if this worked. Due to all the work on her air tube, Sarah is spending Monday night in the PICU, then should be moved to a normal hospital room for Tuesday night, and if all goes well, will come home on Wednesday, but that is up to the docs to decide. Carrie is spending the night both tonight and Tuesday night in the hospital. She will resume normal diet on Tuesday.

If anyone cares, Dad and Matt are doing fine.

LOL!!! Thank you JA!!! I finally was able to get on a computer at the hospital and read this. You made me LOL for the first time since I've been here. John said he was going to do a guy version/girl version, but it was still funny to read it. You gotta love my husband's sense of humor.
