Mark your calendars

Sydney has an appt. with the CT surgeon at CCH Thursday, Nov.13th. This is to evaluate possibly repairing her concave chest in an effort to help reduce her scoliosis. This is NOT a consult to remove the tumor. All of the physicians at UK are in agreement that the risk of ANY kind of surgery would not outweigh any benefit. At this point I'm also in agreement with UK. She is just "perfect". And I don't want to jeopadize that in any way. Please keep her in your prayers. One of the docs there told me "God can fix what we can't". And although it's sad to know that they can't "fix" it, I'm so thankful that she at least has one doctor that still believes in miracles! I will update after Thursday.

Thanks and blessings,
Sandy

Hello, what a sweet little girl you have there! I would be happy to pray for her. My DH will be having surgery on Thurs. the 13th and I will be sitting around waiting, so I will use that time to be praying for you sweet girl. Praying for answers that are good from her tests and God's peace for all of you.

Sydney is precious! We are praying for all of you. My heart has been so burndened by all of the children who are going through so much. I truly cannot imagine being a parent and watching that. I am praying for strength for her and all of you- and for that miracle the dr. mentioned. We are looking forward to an update- hopefully it will be good news. God bless you guys!

Hi Sandy,
Thank you so much for coming by and introducing yourself!

I am so sorry that your little Sydney is walking through such a difficult time. I can't imagine!

Syndey is absolutely adorable and we will keep praying for a complete and total miracle!

BTW, if you ever go on AHH's site and look at their SN's list...a few months ago you would have seen "Winnie"? That is our Jubilee and we are in the immigration process...Lord willing, she will be home in the Spring..

Please know that we will be praying with fervor.

Love, Linn
