I have been meaning to write about this for a while...but honestly, I didn't want to think about it. However surgery is in just a few days so I figured I probably should now. Israel will be having surgery on his tongue again just as he had last year. Here is my post from after he has his surgery last year. Most likely this one will be very similar to the details in that post. The surgery last year was a success, although the doctors say they have never seen anything like this before, so they didn't know what to expect. What we learned is that Israel will most likely have this surgery once a year until his tongue has the desired mobility. At each surgery they can only cut it back so far because as they cut it they have to create a underside of his tongue since he doesn't have one, and there is only so much available tissue to work with. In this blog post here I wrote about Izzy's particular mouth problems. I figured no point in writing it again. So for those who don't remember or who maybe weren't around my blog last year here are the details. His surgery is scheduled for Thursday April 14th in the morning. I will be updating my blog as time allows. Thankfully Izzy is to young to know what is going on so we don't have to try and prepare him, but this is a scary thing for Mommy and Daddy since we remember last time around. We would really appreciate all of your prayers.

I will be lifting you and your precious family up in prayer, what a tough time as a parent, even as you know the surgery is to help, it's still scary. I'll be praying also for your sweet little guy to recover quickly and for the pain to be minimal and easily helped by medicine. Hugs to you!!
