Reuben's surgery Thursday 8am



Reuben's latest craze, socks as gloves

Please keep Reuben in your thoughts and prayers for his urology, L&B and ear tube surgeries. I'm feeling pretty emotional as we mentally prepare, knowing how tough his multiple surgeries last January were in the immediate post operative phase.

Absolutely keeping Reuben in our prayers for successful procedures and for your calm and faithful mamaheart. Anticipating surgery for our babies is something we will never get used to, will we? Much love, my friend.

Just want you to know that we are thinking about you all, and hoping you get good news with the bronchoscopy! Send me a message on Facebook if you want to chat about the results (I have it set to go to my email.) If Luke's tonsils come out we will spend the night, but otherwise we will be home tomorrow night. Here's to a smooth surgery and a clear path to decannulation! Reuben will do great tomorrow - I just know it!

I'm checking in to see how things went. Luke had his tonsils taken out, but they let him come home anyway. Things are good so far, but he is taking pain meds every 4 hours. Now to see if it makes any difference in his breathing...

I am really interested in hearing what Reu's ENT had to say about his breathing around his trach. Hopefully the doctor mustered more enthusiasm than the nurse. I know Luke's doctor would be encouraged by it.

Hope everything went well today. We will keep thinking about you all and praying for Reuben.
