Here's a loopy Elijah snuggling with Murray the therapy dog before surgery. He got to meet this sweet puppy the last time we were here, so it was a special treat to get love from him again.
Elijah was sad to be here this morning. He kept saying that he wanted to see Sammy. :( He stayed busy with playing and reading books until the Versed kicked in and he couldn't hold his head up anymore. Dan went back to the OR with him around 11:35 to make sure he was as comfortable as possible. We are hanging out in a private waiting room now. Surgery is expected to take 4 hours. We are waiting for our first update.
Please pray for a successful surgery, NO cholesteatoma regrowth, no nausea/dizziness/vomiting and for restoration of hearing! THANK YOU!
