Friday morning's the day. No more formula after 5am. Nothing but Pedialite and water until 9am and then nothing at all after that. I guess Colby will stay on the normal Pediatric floor (not the PICU) after his surgery. It should be a one day stay and then he'll come home tomorrow as long as everything goes well.

We're having a winter storm up here in New England today. Not a big deal as the trip to the hospital is pretty much all highway. But we'll just have to allow for some extra time and take it slow.

Poor guy, he's got a bald spot that's a little scarred and swollen on his head from his last surgery just 2 weeks ago. And now he'll go in for this one.

He's pretty happy and content thus far this morning....looking around, cooing and doing his normal little sounds. Like I said yesterday, we're not thrilled he has to go for surgery again, but if this is what he needs, then this is what should be done. And the sooner we can relieve the pressure on his head, the better it will be for him.

I'm going to stay with him tonight in the hospital, so I'll bring my laptop and will send updates as I get them.

Thank you guys again for your support!
