Great News!

I just spoke with Gavin's ENT doctor. He said that the biopsy came back and it's not a tumor or cancerous! The lab called it "ulcerous inflammation." I am very relieved about this! The doctor sounded quite relieved as well. Gavin will still need surgery to remove it. This will probably take place the beginning of January and will most likely only require a one night stay in the hospital. The only concern that the doctor had was, "How do we keep this from growing again?", since Gavin is obviously doing it to himself by somehow rubbing his teeth on the under side of his tongue. He suggested seeing our dentist and having a bite made for Gavin. I actually laughed when he said this! Gavin doesn't even like tasty food in his mouth! Do you think that he will tolerate a mouth piece?! I guess we'll take it one step at a time.

Thank You for your prayers!

"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have it's perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." James 1:2-4

Thank you, God! I know I can't even come close to what you all have been feeling, but I've been so worried for you all (not good or right to worry--I know). This is a great Christmas gift from God! This is awesome news!

Thank goodness! What a relief! I have been wondering how it would turn out. Ugh, a bite. That's a whole different kettle of fish isn't it? Marie grinds her teeth really badly and it's been suggested that we should get a bite made to help with that. I don't see it helping (she has a horrible overbite too). We'll pray for an uneventful surgery! Love the photos:) I just want to pinch his little cheeks:) I did take a nap today too... hopefully tonight I can get some sleep and get all caught up!

Although I don't know you personally you and Gavin are an inspiration to me. You certainly have an over-flowing cup in your sweet little boy!
I am praying for peace and an easy time during the procedure.

Your in our prayers..........
