April 7th

Feeling very happy and blessed today. JD is having fun playing XBox with Josh. He is even making his sound effects. (A very good sign!) :) I was expecting a rough day because it was a rough night. JD can not sleep at night. He is up every 30 min. I think tonight will be much better! :}

Update on the surgery.

JD is finally in the OR. He was really scared, but so brave too. He had trick gum to give the docs and he tricked em all! It relieved some stress. About 5 hours of surgery.Docs didn't sound as optimistic as we had hoped. We just have a long road ahead of us. I hate the unknown. Thanks for the prayers from EVErYONE. They help a lot. We have such a great support system. We love you all.

We are so happy. JD is done! We are just waiting to see him now. The docs were very happy with the surgery. They were 2 hours faster than we expected. They didn't even have to remove his inner ear. They didn't have to extend the incision to remove a piece of his skull either. We are so relieved. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!

JD looks great. He just wanted a drink and didn't want to pee in the catheter. He is asleep and should be able to leave ICU tomorrow afternoon sometime. We are so greatful to Heavenly Father that he is doing so well and surgery was such a success. We surprised him with the new Lego Star Wars III game, he even cracked a smile! We LOVE YOU JD!
