Tomorrow we send our sweet little angel into surgery for the 3rd time in his short 8 months of life. The past couple of days, I've caught myself choking up over silly things on TV or when I'm just looking at Wyatt being all big boyish sitting up, smiling and playing. The love I have for my son is immeasurable and it is SO scary to send him into surgery. Thankfully God loves him so much more than I do. I know both of these procedures are probably simple enough for these doctors that they can do them blind folded but I don't think this mamma could ever get used to doing this. Please pray for Wyatt, his lungs to be strong and to not need help after surgery and a fast recovery, the hands of his doctors and discernment during the actual procedure and for James and I as we approach surgery time (less then 12 hours away). And then pray again for James and I... haha. I didn't even want to put him to bed tonight. I just wanted to snuggle and play with him. I may grab him and let him sleep with me tonight, haha. I am so thankful for how big and in control God is. I don't know how people go through life without having faith in that fact. Having Wyatt, I rest in that so much. If I didn't I don't think I'd be able to make it through this.
To recap his surgeries (two in the same day) I'm just going to copy and paste from a previous post for the explanations. :-)
ENT: Wyatt had a sleep study done in January. They goo-ed and taped him up good. It was so gross but Wyatt, as usual, was a champ and just went with the flow. Per those results, Wyatt had a nasal scope (I am totally not sure if that is what it is called or not, but that is what they did- stuck a camera scope thing down his nose, while I held him in my lap) and he needs a surgery. His adenoids are a little large and he has some floppy tissue on his voice box. She is going to remove both of these things. The adenoids can be problematic and cause throat and ear infections and the floppy tissue blocks some breathing. We were concerned with these results and wondering if this was a "necessary" surgery but anything blocking any breathing, I feel like is important. I want to give Wyatt every advantage in the lung department I can to help him with growing! This was also made out to be a "I can do it in my sleep, no big deal" surgery. It's an hour long and for a normal kid, recovery would happen at home but again, we aren't normal and Wyatt will probably stay over night to be watched. We have the same prayer request as for urology- that this does not create any backslides in his progress or development. :-)

surgery should last 2 hours
We should be staying the night but the doctors will make the final decision tomorrow morning.
Thank you for joining us in praying for Wyatt. We cannot express how much your prayers have lifted us up through this journey of ours. :-)
