Surgery Scheduled

Bryson is scheduled for his lip repair on September 19th. At the same time, there will be an ultrasound performed on his eyes to see if cataract removal will help him to see. I'm really nervous about the surgery, because he'll look different, and I'll miss seeing him as he is, the way God made him. But, you do have to look at the many benefits to having the lip repaired and that hopefully, he'll be able to eat better and breathe better through his nose. He may make different sounds than what he is doing now. He's recently picked up a new sound. It kind of sounds like a cricket chirping. We have no idea how he makes this sound, but it's funny to hear it.

I will be flying to San Antonio to be with him and Mommy & Daddy for moral support and to catch glimpse of his new face.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as surgery is always kind of nerve wracking.

Thanks Sherry,

I will relay this on to Travis & Dana. I'm so happy that you visit here from time to time and am very glad that you have an interest in the "Amazing Bryson". He is such a happy boy. Always smiling and giggling and has come a long way since Copenhagen.
