Abe's appt

Abe's appt went WONDERFUL!!! Thank you so much for all the prayers!!! The neurosurgeon we love! He was very thorough and very knowledgeable. Took time to answer all our questions which weren't many because he covered almost everything while he was telling us about the surgeries. He will be doing the VNS, lumbar puncture, muscle biopsy and skin biopsy. They will be getting blood and urine samples also while he is asleep. The surgery will take about 3 hours and they will keep him over night so that they know his pain is being managed well along with his oxygen. His office staff was very helpful, and friendly while still being very organized and professional. We left there with the peace we needed about the surgery. His surgery is scheduled for Tuesday June 30th at 7:30AM. Everything with Dr. Shoffner's office is falling into place too. Thanks again for the prayers!!!

I am clueless when it comes to some of the medical terms you use, but is VNS the pacemaker like device used for epilepsy? I am praying for you and Abe and Mike and of course all the doctors, nurses, techs, everyone invloved in this surgery. You and Mike just amaze me and make me realize how incredibly blessed we are to have healthy children and grandchildren. Thank you so much for sharing your lives with so are most humble and I just continue to pray God's blessing, protection and grace on you and your family. judy cannon
