FUNDO SURGERY TOMORROW!

Witt's fundoplication surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. We don't have an exact time yet. Honestly, even though none of us want Witt to have another surgery, if he needs it then we are glad it is sooner than later. I am trusting that this is God's perfect timing. The sooner the surgery the sooner Witt is back on the path of going home! After surgery Witt will go to an ICU room. Right now we don't know if that will be the PICU on 3rd or the CVICU on 17. Either way it's back to recliners but it's also back to crossing paths with more families...a chance to allow Christ to touch lives! Witt will dictate how long he has to remain on the ventilator. The doctors will try to remove the vent as soon as possible. I am not sure if they will try immediately after surgery or wait a little later to even attempt it. Witt's lungs are looking very good(for Witt!). Melanie asked if it wasn't too soon after pneumonia to have surgery. The attending said Witt's lungs are in good shape for him and are pretty dry. SO...with God leading...Witt is scheduled for surgery tomorrow. We have learned that nothing around here is etched in stone though. I just see Christ right now holding Witt in His arms and walking. Christ has the most beautiful smile on His face and is simply asking us to walk with them!

The Levrets in Abilene will be praying for Witt as he has his surgery tomorrow. May God bless you sweet family and you go through another stressful time. Thanks for giving us the privilege to pray for you and the medical needs Witt has. He is a precious little boy and has become very dear to us. Thanks for all the short videos that help us to be better acquainted with him. Sent to you with much love.

Praying earnestly for successful fundoplication surgery tomorrow, and a speedy and complete recovery so Witt can come home, and I can come visit him!
