05 Sep '04 - 164 W - + 14 - 5 Waiting until Tuesday

Alex has been making a bit more secretions in his throught (sp?) lately, which normal people would cough up, but with the respirator, he can't. Apprently having the respirator there actually causes him to have additional secretions anyway, just because it's there. That just means that that they have to keep up on suctioning it out for him. Other than that, not much has changed in the last couple days. This is really good. We're mostly waiting until Tuesday, when he goes in for his surgery to have the shunt put in. I'm both scared and optimistic about the outcome.

Kari and I saw a good movie last night, "Big Fish". I really enjoyed it, but I think Kari and I are a bit overly emotional right now, so perhaps we got a bit more emotionally involved than we normally might. It was good to sit back and have some time to ourselves and relax at home for a short while.

Dan and Kari:
Just wanted to send our Congratulations, love, support and prayers. We’re keeping up to date on Alex, and of course Mom and Dad…on the Website. We are surely very proud of both of you…and glad that Alex is in such loving care. With all the known support and love, we know Tuesday will be fine. Our love,
The Wiley’s

I bet it was great for you to get back to your home. I could imagine how it felt for you to walk back into your door after 5 weeks Kari! Before you know it, your little baby will be there crying and waking you up. I am sure Kujo and Butter have a rude awakening coming :-)

Dan and Kari – My prayers are constant for all of you and I have a good group of prayers all have you on their list. I don’t E-mail; so I get my messages from the Northrops and the new grandparents. Alex has a big world to grow into and he will have lots of stories to tell as he grows older and shows his scars. Much love to you both.

Our hearts and prayers go out to you and will be with you all day today, all three of you. We’re counting on him pulling through this surgery with flying colors. We know he will. Thanks for posting the beautiful pictures.
