Off to Wellington

We have just seen the surgeon who said yes Isaac needs surgery. We have to get to Wellington Hospital tomorrow for surgery on Friday and she said he may need to be in for two or three days after that to recover as his skin is so bad.
We are so relieved. We were planning to go to Wellington tomorrow anyway to wave off Nigel, Barbara, Matt and Meg who are currently staying with us and go to Sydney tomorrow.
We are hoping to get a room at Ronald McDonald House but if not will willingly stay in a motel - anything to stop Isaac's pain and leaking gastrostomy.
I now have to do some manic planning and packing and cancel our various Christmas activities.
Will try to post from the hospital.

Thank goodness for that! I am so glad that they are seeing sense and are doing something to stop Isaac's suffering. I will be thinking of you guys and hoping that the surgery goes really well.
Take care,

A great Christmas gift for all of you. I will be praying for success so that your little guy can again enjoy just being a very special little boy.

All the best for Isaac's surgery, Angela - it will be a big relief to have it done, I'm sure, and lovely to be able to enjoy a happy Christmas afterwards! We'll be thinking of you all, love Karen and Lenny

Perserverance paid off. Parents always know best. Isaac is so lucky to have you both as parents. The best Christmas present Isaac can have is no more pain and real food. Will be thinking of you.
