“Super Glue” Surgery Tomorrow

Four-year-old Ben is scheduled for his second surgery tomorrow (Thursday, May 22). Dr. Berenstein will inject a type of “super glue” or “crazy glue” into the affected area of Ben’s brain in order to totally stop the abnormal blood flow and close off the area.

After a few more days in the hospital, Ben should be released on Sunday.  He and his parents will continue to stay in New York at the Ronald McDonald House in Manhattan until his follow-up exam the following Wednesday.

Our little man was in good spirits today even though he had to have an IV this afternoon.  He spoke on the phone with me and also asked his mom if they could phone his great grandfather (my father).  My dad was so excited when he answered his telephone and heard Ben’s sweet little voice say, “Hello, Papa.”

We continue to pray for another successful operation tomorrow.  All four of Ben’s grandparents plus my dad are in Georgia, and it’s not easy being so far away from this precious little guy.
