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."
