Day 338

We had quite an adventure today. Here's Mom's Facebook status:

"Had a surprise today. Took Jacob to the neurosurgeon. He needs two spinal surgeries. One for a "tethered cord" and the other for a large cyst lying alongside the spinal cord. He is having both surgeries Thursday, and they should total about 6 hours. Then 2 nights at Emmanuel, and 2 weeks of rest at home and he should be better than new.

A lady at Emmanuel gave us an awesome 45 minute tour o
f the different rooms of the hospital that he will see, and what he can expect. It was "costume day" at the hospital which happens one day a month. Every child is given a costume and the ones that can walk have a parade. We were leaving the floor and saw the costume lady. She let Jacob pick out a costume to keep. He chose Spiderman. He also received a doll, teddy bear and a bag of goodies."

Oh, yikes! We'll be praying for Jacob today. Sounds like the hospital he's at will take good care of him, though, and make the experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible. I didn't get a Spiderman costume when I was in the hospital. :-P Although, I did come home with a baby, so I suppose I can't complain. ;)
