Isaiah's surgery went very well today. Between the 2 procedures, he was in the OR for about 4 1/2 hours. The endoscopy was primarily normal except for a slightly abnormal looking pyloris. The doctor, Dr. Boyle, said it was "puckered" and took a biopsy of it. We won't know any results for 5-7 days.

Dr. Chang, plastics/ortho, was very pleased with Isaiah's hand. He feels that Isaiah will have great results over time. It takes approximately 6-8 weeks till the new "thumb" is able to work. Isaiah has a full arm cast that is bright orange!) He looks rather cute. I have to admit, though, that I will miss his little 'nub' of a thumb.

We were very blessed to have our pastor, Pastor Campbell, and his wife Rochelle come down and pray over Isaiah and with us. We belong to such a special church that truly love and support us. Thank you to everyone for continuing to pray for us, for providing meals, for taking care of Josiah, for cleaning our home, and so much more. We have so many different people, family, and friends taking care of us that we cannot thank you enough! We don't know what we would do without you!
