A quick, but important update:
It feels like forever since we’ve posted one of these, and it’s probably because it has been forever…but I’ll try to keep this brief:
As many of you know/remember, to fully address Beckett’s heart condition, the doctors suggest a three part process. Though Beckett has had numerous surgeries, he has yet to actually have the third/final one. A lot of steam has picked up lately on this timeline as we have just found out late last week a few critical dates regarding the final conclusion of this chapter in our lives. Beckett is scheduled for another cardiac cath tomorrow (9/6/16), Leah’s birthday (not the greatest of birthday gifts :-\). If this goes smoothly, which we fully anticipate, we actually have an official date of his last surgery….October 5th. As I’ve said to a few of my friends and family, “This just got real.” To be honest, the rush of emotion from years past has already reared its ugly head a few times for me within the last few days. We genuinely are not looking forward to this, but are anxious to close this chapter. I assure you we, as a family, have been embracing every moment since the day Beckett came home from eight months in the hospital on August 26, 2013. It’s been a wonderful few years together, and we are looking forward to many more!
So, if you would, please join us in your prayers and encouragement this next month (specifically 9/6/16 & 10/5/16)…we’d greatly appreciate it.
