Conner resting up for surgery
Conner resting up for surgery tomorrow!

Conner is scheduled to have his surgery tomorrow afternoon. He is going to get his feeding tube placed and the nissen procedure done. Both are fairly common procedures, which is comforting, but of course we are still a little anxious about it because it's "surgery". They have to make 5 incisions for the feeding tube and another incision for the nissen. Our sweet little Conner will be all hooked up again to oxygen and I.V.'s and medicine. He has had a rough few days this past week, so we are praying that his body will handle the surgery well and that he will be able to make a quick recovery. The surgeon said that it takes around 10 days to recover, but I just keep telling myself that it will take about 3 weeks so that I'm not dissapointed if it's longer, and will be pleasently surprised if indeed it is shorter recovery time.
Conner has such an amazing little spirit. He truly is the sweetest baby. He rarely cries, and is consoled very easily when he does. His little body has been through so much and yet he just keeps the most relaxed, laid-back disposition. The nurse that put in his I.V. today said that when she was getting it ready, Conner cried like he knew what was coming, but then didn't make a sound when she actually put in the I.V. and said that he just looked up at her with his big blue eyes...and then when she had to put his hand on a little flat board to keep the I.V. in, then he cried. I could'nt have asked for a more precious, perfect little baby to have to go through all of this with. He truly has made this journey so much easier. He is full patience, joy and the Light of Christ. When he looks at me with his big, beautiful, alert eyes, I feel peace and hope and know that everything is going to be just fine. We know that Heavenly Father is watching over him and comforting him. We are so blessed so have Conner as our son!
