Bump in the road...

Happy to report Maddox is still doing great!

Maddox had to make a trip back to New York yesterday after his drainage tube came out & his eye quickly swelled shut.

Maddox had surgery this morning to replace the tube. While Dr. Waner was replacing the tube he decided to remove some of the extra skin around Maddox's eye.

Everything went great and Maddox is doing well.

We are hoping to have him back home by Friday.

Thank you for keeping our little man in your thoughts and prayers.

Home Sweet Home

I can not express how grateful I am to have been able to be a part of the first of Maddox's surgeries.

He has taught me how to overcome obstacles, to be hopeful & optimistic and above all persistant.

I can not imagine how it would feel to be told "there is nothing that can be done for your child".

We thank god for Dr. Waner....

We can now see both of Maddox's gorgeous brown eyes for the first time.

We had hoped for the draining tube in Maddox's eye to be removed prior to the trip home but the Doctor advised it would have to stay in, we were happy to see the stitches come out on Friday :)

Another testament to his strength.....anesthetic Friday morning & back at it Friday afternoon.

We arrived home early Saturday Morning looking forward to getting back to the routine.

The drainage tube is still in, we are hopeful that it will be removed later this week.

The second surgery was originally to be scheduled for September. Maddox did so well that it has been moved up to July.

An eye specialist will also be seeing Maddox at that time, we are praying for them to tell us he has vision in the eye.
Thank you to everyone at the Park Central Hotel who took such great care of Maddox.
Thank you to everyone who showed so much love and support for Maddox.
Will post again soon.
