The Call

I just got "The Call."

If you've ever had a child who was slated for a major surgery you'll understand.  You know.

The Call
       that says in 5 months and 9 days your Bug's life will change if even just a little.

The Call
       That your 3 year old will be making his 6th trip to the operating theater.

The Call
       that says it's real and your Bug will be there, in that hospital, again.

The Call
       that reminds you of weeks and months of wound care and recovery.

The Call
       that the surgeons have coordinated schedules and are already prepping for your little Bug.

The Call.

Bittersweet.  Emotional.  Both heart-breaking and encouraging.  Terrifying.  Heart stopping.  Miraculous.

The Call.

Surgery is set for June 29th, 9:00 am.  Please begin praying now, if you haven't already, for Bugsy and for
his surgeons, Dr Jodi Smith and Dr Robert Havlik, and for all the nurses and staff at Riley Hospital for Children who will be caring for our little boy again.

Craniosynostosis stinks.
