Getting ready for surgery day.

Well, it is days before surgery now. We are preparing to make our long journey to northern California. August has some idea what is going on in the next couple days. It is so hard to tell what he understands and what he doesnt. We have talked to him about it many times now. We have read him books on surgery and getting a new ear. He says he wants to have the doctors fix his ear but then the next minute he wants us to leave it like it is. It is really confusing for him, I think.

As for me, I am a mess. I am worried for my little man. I just want him to be better than before he went in for this surgery. I want him to be happy that we decided to have this surgery done for him at his age. I want him to ear and have two ears like all his loved ones and friends. I am worried that he will be okay while under the doctors care. I am just worried, like every mom would be. But I know my little man is strong and a fighter so he will be okay. He has to be! He is my baby.

We are leaving Wednesday May 26th at 4:30 in the morning. We will have a pre-op appointment at 2:50 that same day. Surgery is at 6:00 am Thursday May 27th. We will be staying close to the hospital for one week following the surgery for his post-op appointment Tuesday June 1st. Returning Wednesday June 2nd.

We have been praying every night for this surgery to be successful. I know he is in good hands. If I could ask for one more favor, please keep August in your prays. We will keep you all informed on his progress.

Thank you again for all your support!
