The common cold virus along with a fever and sore throat have derailed next week's carefully constructed surgical plan. We tried so hard to avoid this.   The good news is that Forrest is strong now and the risk of it progressing to pneumonia is much less than it would have been a year ago.  But in discussions today with his primary surgeon we agreed that it isn't safe for him to undergo anesthesia and a major surgery, so we will regroup and reschedule when Forrest is in the best shape possible. The likelihood is that it may be March before both surgical teams can be rescheduled.  Forrest was ready to get on with it so his first reaction to this decision was, "This Sucks!"  But we realize it's better to wait and go into this critical surgery with Forrest in the best shape possible. 

In the meantime Forrest is enjoying visits from friends home from school and his Pops home cooking. 

Wishing you all Love, Laughter, Health, and Happiness in the New Year!

  1. Oh Forrest, I'm so sorry they had to cancel your surgery for today. I'm sure the doctor's know best, though. What a big letdown for you and your family, though. Praying that you get rid of the cold quickly, and that they can get you rescheduled as soon as possible.

    Love and Prayers,
