Caden Update

I don't know how many of you already know this but Caden is having minor outpatient surgery on Thursday morning. He has a Hydrocele (sp). Basically he has a hole in between his abdomen and his scrotum. Fluid is passing back and forth through the hole all the time which isn't a big deal unless some of his intestine slips into it and then he would have a hernia and need surgery. They said it would be terribly painful for him so we opted to go for the preventative surgery. It is a very simple procedure and we will be home by the afternoon. They say that he will be up and running with in 24 hours. I'm letting you all know so that you can keep him in your prayers tonight. Even though it is very simple it is still surgery so we are a little nervous. We will update again tomorrow to let you know how it all went. Thanks in advance for you prayers.

Our oldest son had that same surgery a couple of years ago. I was amazed at how quickly he was up and running if he hadn't even had the surgery at all. Good luck to Caden!
