I had just posted to Facebook about insurance approving Brody’s procedure and how excited I was for his surgery tomorrow. Immediately it sunk in. Brody was going to have SURGERY tomorrow.

Is it too late to take him and run?

I’ve decided to make a list of things to remember tomorrow when they take Brody back.

  1. His medical team cares. They are parents, aunts, uncles, and even grandparents. They are wonderfully skilled and highly intelligent. Brody is in the best of hands, and I could not be any more grateful.

2. Brody is strong.

He’s proven to be one tough cookie. There will be tough days ahead but he will get through this just like he has in the past.

3. This is for Brody's overall well-being.

We can all love him to the moon and back but that love does not change the fact that he is missing a portion of his anatomy. A portion that can be medically corrected to improve his quality of life. It would be foolish of us to ignore the medical needs of these procedures. These procedures are inevitable.

4. Brody's supporters and prayer warriors have his back.

I know many people will be praying hard and thinking of him tomorrow. They will also be praying that we have the strength and courage to be the best advocates for Brody. So we’re going to join them.

We will be praying selfishly for Brody tomorrow and the long recovery days that come.

5. Brody has the best smile, and it won't be long before we are seeing it light up our lives, not to mention an entire room again soon.

Thank you all for being such great support during this challenging and bumpy time in our lives. You have no idea how much it means to me and little Brody. Every prayer, thought, text, comment, you name it, makes all the difference and brightens our day just that much more.
