. . .a local boy named Luke who is having surgery on Tuesday, 9/30, with Dr. Bove. We met the family when we were in Michigan last fall. Luke was having surgery then too, but this one is expected to be 6.5 hours and the most involved yet for him. Please ask God to guide his doctors and nurses and to help his body adjust to the new pulmonary artery and valve that will be placed and that the repair to his AV canal is successful. Please also ask for safe travels for the family and a speedy recovery for Luke.
Connie still has a cough and has been put on azythromycin as well. Hopefully it's gone soon. He's been so funny lately. When his speech therapist came Thursday, I told her that when he's excited he tends to verbalize more and so we tried to get him all riled up. It was a hoot watching him go from one thing to the next. Tackling Mookie, pushing the exercise ball, rolling over the peanut ball, "sliding" on the floor. He was definitely showing off for her! She agrees that he's probably in a big gross motor spurt right now. He's focusing all his learning on that portion of development (which is totally normal!) and after awhile, he'll go in a different direction. We're hoping it's speech!
