Our baby boy finally got the break he so richly deserved!
Dr. Jennings ordered another rigid bronchoscopy to investigate how things were looking in terms of his upper airways before his big surgery tomorrow. And what he found was absolutely miraculous.
Because Rafa has been so excellent at growing lung, the lung he's grown has pushed out and propped up the airways that used to be so floppy! This means that the only procedure to be done tomorrow is pushing his heart forward so that his right bronchi can continue to expand and strengthen. Not because this is minimal by any means, but it's far less invasive and risky than what was slated for tomorrow and cuts his surgery time by two-thirds. WOW!
Needless to say, we were body-wracked with sobs of relief and joy this morning to hear the news. Miracle Boy has once again exceeded everyone's expectations and set his sights high.
And so have we.
Team Rafa has mobilized and it has won! His name doesn't mean "God healed" for nothing.
And for that, we are eternally grateful.
