"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
I am sitting beside Liam in his new private room! They asked us if we wanted to move late last night because they had one open. It was such a blessing last night to be here with Liam. He and I were able to close the door and have some privacy. We both slept peacefully. It has been a definite praise for both of us.
Yesterday we received news that Liam's next surgery date has been moved up to next Wednesday, November 12th. They were able to clear schedules and get everything booked!
Liam was a little down yesterday as the reality of another surgery began to sink in. It was hard for him when he was feeling so sick to his stomach to think about having to do this all again. He did have some highlights yesterday with visitors and the child life specialist came to visit to bring him his bravery beads. He has a big string already, each bead representing a part of his journey and all the different procedures and tests that he has had to face. We also had a boost yesterday when his physio therapist came to visit and give him his exercise plan. Again we saw God's hand in that it was someone who we had met at Ryerson Camp who was the nurse one summer. Liam was up numerous times walking to the bathroom or to a wheelchair that allowed him to get out and about. This morning he went to the family lounge and made it through a whole movie. He has begun to eat a bit more today and keep it down. He has had apple sauce, a grilled cheese smuggled in by Grandpa, and even had a hamburger for lunch. So far he has kept it down.
He is doing well today and is looking forward to a visit from his siblings Daniel, Caroline and T.J. it will be nice to all be reconnected again after several days apart.
Liam says hi to everyone and thank you for the continued prayers. If you could pray specifically for the itchiness of his head dressing that would be great as it still bothers him quite a bit.
