Eve of Surgery

   This is the eve of Jacob's next surgery.He's no stranger to surgeries,having his first one at seven months for Hydrocephalous and his ninth one two years ago for Hydrocephalous.I think as a parent no matter how many surgeries you've gone through with your children there's always worries and stress.Jacob was able to help make the decision for this surgery he'll be having in the morning.He has had reoccurring sinus infections and serious throat clearing issues for about the last year and a half.After exhausting every antibiotic and several other meds thinking it was acid reflux his ENT did CT # 2 and saw that Jacob's crooked septum had gotten worse and a polyp had grown bigger.So Friday January 20,2017 hopefully will be the end of his infections and throat clearing issues.
   Tonight his grandmother and I took him to The Carolina Gospel Associations concert with The Carolina Quartet,The Pine Ridge Boys and The LeFevres .His love for Gospel music, Southern and Contemporary,makes this Mamma a happy person. It was a great concert and it helped take his mind off the surgery for a brief time.Afterwards we hit the grocery store because he's hungry and only has a couple hours to eat(typical teenage boy).
   We are home,his belly full and watching some T.V. So as I close this post on the eve of surgery I ask for prayers as we travel up and down the mountain tomorrow,prayers for Dr.Rheney,Jacob and a speedy recovery.Thanks to all and goodnight.
