Well, Dr. Dumont came by about 8:30 this morning to talk to us. He confirmed everything that has been said Friday and Saturday, and let us know that he is going to check Thomas’s blood levels tomorrow morning and if the clotting level is good, they will do the procedure tomorrow. If not, it will be done Tuesday. After the surgery it will be 24 hours and we can go home. Sooo we could be back home as early as Tuesday, but Thursday morning at the latest. We are so happy to finally have news. Thomas has a good night last night, and we both got a little sleep. Papaw is planning to come up today and spend the day with Thomas, and I think a few others are coming to visit today. So hopefully, he will get to get some smiles in and maybe just maybe I will get to take a walk around outside.. I love him to pieces.. but cabin fever is starting to get to me just sitting here. Usually if I can get about 10 – 15 minutes to go outside and get non hospital air I am good for a few more hours.
I have to say the staff other than our first night on the 6th floor has been great. If you would like to know more about the doctor here is the faculty web page for him http://www.healthsystem.virginia.edu/internet/neurosurgery/faculty/dumont.cfm we have been very happy with the care he has given us and he seems to think things will go well with the surgery.
That is all we have for now, the boys and GramAnn and DanDan made it home safe yesterday and it looks like we will get to see our boys soon, so that is good.
Thank you to everyone for continuing to keep up in your prayers, as you can see the power of prayer really does work, we have made it this far, and now just 3 days to go.
Thanks and God Bless
