The Good, The Bad, and the Not Too Great...

Sooooo... Sam has a stricture or blockage, if you will. Not the worst thing in the world, but it certainly doesn't make things easy.
The good things are that Sam is no longer in pain, we are in our own room, Sam is healing nicely from the surgery and we are pretty sure that his current issues are not a motility problem or a shut down in his system. The bad things are that Sam may have to go into surgery again or if the stricture is just due to trama than Sam will heal on his own but this will take some time. The not so good things are that we are stuck at the hospital, Sam has to surgically get a PIC line put into his arm to feed him intravenously, and of course will need some sort of anesthesia for this. We are expecting that this will happen tomorrow. Again please pray that Sam's stricture will resolve on its own and that we get to go home soon. Thanks for checking in.

Ugh, Carrie. I know this must be weighing on you guys. I'll be praying about the stricture while also praying for you and Scott. May God be with you.

I have never been the type guy known for prayer... But since that baby was born I have been praying, I pray for the good that does exist once in while, I pray when its not so good and I pray when its like this... I Love You Guys, and all will improve.. Sammy is a fighter just like his parents.
Call me if you need anything KIDDO, I will come there if you need me.

Not a day goes by that I do not think of you guys. Even if we do not speak for awhile- you are in my thoughts everyday. My heart goes out to you. I pray that all will be well soon and that you will be home again soon. All of my love to you, Scott and Sam. I will be checking in on you guys.
Love- Deb

Someone said to me once, "God never pulls a no show, he just shows up late". He will be there...
