So today was the big day. We are sitting here with Gideon in pediatric ICU. His sweet little head all bandaged up and wrapped like a turban. He looks like a mago, which is another name for a magician. Actually, Christine is here and she pointed out that he looks a lot like Aladdin. Pictures soon to come.
The surgery went better than expected. While he has tubes of all kinds connected to his little body and is going to swell up to the point where he'll look like a beaten up boxer, he's recuperating just fine. We'll most likely be able to take him home this Friday.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. God has once again worked a miracle in our lives.
