Croup & Surgery

Well, Calvin has had a rough week. He was pretty healthy on Wednesday and most of Thursday but then came down with croup. Not fun for anyone - he has spent the past several nights in a pack-n-play in our room or sleeping with us. We think he is on the mend and we are hoping to get some good, uninterrupted sleep for all of us. Thankfully, he didn't get into serious breathing trouble. So far, Patrick has remained well - we are so grateful!

We have an update on surgery. After feeling very frustrated by the process at our current hospital, we learned that the Shriner's Hospital in Chicago has a cleft program. We applied at the end of June and Calvin was accepted within a few days; we have an appointment in a few weeks for him to be seen by their team of surgeons and other professionals. We have not cancelled the scheduled surgery but providing everything goes well, we plan to switch hospitals. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers - this has been a tremendously frustrating year trying to actually have a surgery!

Please do pray that Calvin will remain healthy. He has done really great until this last week and we hope that it was just a bad week!
