Lots of news

First of all, I've been remiss in letting you know what's happened with Boy since December. In short, he had a full lung collapse at the beginning of February, followed by emergency surgeries (yes, the ones we'd hoped to avoid) and 8 days in the hospital. The doctors have given him a thumbs up and he's regaining his energy and previous activity levels. And the 6 new scars are way cool. :)

Secondly, I'm excited to share the news of my contract for CHILDREN OF LIGHT, due out in November from Written World Communications. CHILDREN is an historical that begins in 13th century Europe and ends a decade later on a sprawling estate in Egypt.

I'd love for you to visit my new website and then let me know what you think.

The Low-Down

We're home and unpacked and very weary, but so thankful to God for his blessings and his answers to many prayers.

Here's where things stand with the Boy. After three days of appointments and lots of tests including an echocardiogram and lung function, the Mayo Clinic pulmonologist determined that our son's otherwise good health and the positive outcomes of his previous lung collapses (pneumothoraxes) bode well for him in the future.

The surgeries being considered--fusing the lining of the lung to the lung itself and removing small cysts on the lungs--would be very painful for Boy and perhaps ultimately unnecessary. Yes, he might continue to have lung collapses, but the doctor expects they will be relatively minor and that he might even grow out of them. Very specific genetic tests have been done, including a skin biopsy netting two sutures (battle wounds ;-). The results, due in several weeks, will guide doctors in reconsidering surgery. In other words, if the Boy isn't going to outgrow these collapses, then we'll know so and will have better information to decide the best course of action. In the meantime, if he has a significant lung collapse, we'll know beyond doubt that we need to move forward. The pulmonologist suspects the previous pneumos might be the result of rapid height gain outpacing lung development.

We feel great about the results of our trip. And while we love our doctors here, we feel things were heading too fast toward a decision for surgery before all the facts were in. It is a tremendous blessing to have worked with a team of doctors (here and at the Mayo), who were willing to consult together for our Boy's long term best interest.

All that being said, I will not and cannot downplay the power of prayer--many faith-filled people have prayed for healing and for a positive outcome without surgery. In one way or another, God has answered those prayers.

Thank you for keeping up with us and for your love and support.

Home!!

Quick update. Docs have decided surgery would not be in Caleb's best interest at this time. We will wait for genetic testing results which will take several weeks, but current tests look really good. We're trying to hit the road asap and get to Kansas tonight in the hopes of beating the icy roads due from here through Iowa tomorrow.

Thank you for your prayers--God is good all the time!

More later.

Good Gifts

We found out this afternoon that we have an early appointment on Thursday with the pulmonologist who will review Caleb's tests with us and make a final determination regarding surgery. We're praying for wisdom and, if everything seems good, quick action and a trip home. The earliest surgery we can hope for seems to be Friday.

Thank you for the many expressions of love and concern. Thank you especially for your prayers. All good gifts come from God.

We're very blessed to be staying in the Ronald McDonald House--another gift. It often takes days or weeks to get in; we got in the day we arrived. We've met a couple of families and find everyone here to be rooting for each other and for one another's kids. There are many sad stories, many heartwarming. We had dinner in the community room tonight, enjoying a meal brought in by one of the local grocery stores. The Mayo Clinic itself is a fascinating small city worthy of its own blogpost. But we're tired and the alarm will go off early, so I'll close out here.

Love and hugs.

Hurry Up and Wait

Boy had an echocardiogram, blood tests, and a skin biopsy this morning . . . the last two for genetic testing. We're just hanging out now, waiting to hear about the surgeries. Waiting, waiting, waiting . . .
