Seriously this is a really bad and scarey day in my life.
I know that some of you believe in prayer and some of you don't. Some of you believe in God and some of you have other beliefs. Some of you just believe in a spiritual being or even nothing. Regardless of which is your choice I am asking you for your thoughts, wishes and prayers with this one. I'm also asking that even if you don't like me, not to let that be a factor right now. This isn't about me.
I have, as a lot of you know, someone in my life that is referred to as my second daughter. Her Mom and I grew up together and her and my daughter grew up together. We are very close and she is just like a daughter to me.
She has a son that turned 4 in March. He has one of the worst cases of scoliosis reported in the U.S. He has seen many specialists between here and St. Louis. They say if you were standing behind him and could see his spine through his skin you would be looking at the front of it, not the back. It is so twisted. He has trouble breathing and there are ways he can't sit or move. It effects his lungs and his breathing. It effects the way he sits, walks, lays and sleeps.He would also be approx 9" taller if his spine weren't so severely twisted. Plus he has to wear a breathing machine at night for his sleep apnea. This little boy does not know there is anything wrong with him.He is as normal acting as any little boy his age.As much as he can be anyway. He smiles, oh my gosh he smiles and it just captivates your heart.
In Feb of this year he had a growing rod put on his spine to hopefully help straighten his curvature some. And to save his life. He will have to have surgery every 6-8 months to put an extention in this rod until he stops growing.
He is in surgery right now. No, I am not there because I have his little sister for the next few weeks while he is recovering. They are going to add the extention. They are also going to open his chest and stretch the tendons and such so that they will not interfere with his body slowly being able to turn, and other reasons. They are going to remove a rib that is about to punture his lung. His other lung is not in vey good shape. It is scheduled to be at least a 9 hour surgery.
He has excellent physicians and nurses. But I am asking that regardless of who or what you ask for help that you would do that for this little boy. He needs ALL the prayers, wishes and help he can get to come through this strong and have a speedy recovery. Also that he not have any more problems occur this time.
He truly is a little angel on earth.
Also, maybe could you add an extra word for his Mom and Dad, who are there with him.
To everyone that takes a moment to do this, I thank you so very much.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved, especially to Khyler for his strength to get through this, and to his surgeon, may his hands be steady and his mind be quick to forsee any problems before they arise.

GPT is on the case as well. So you know.. nice little blue candle with his name inscribed is burning in the shop this week as well.. and everyone who comes in is asked to leave a bit of love behind for him.

Patience for you my dear, 2 year olds can be trying... just think of all the adventure of reseeing everything through her eyes!!

GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Surgery ended more than an hour sooner than expected!!
Khyler is intibated (sp?) and in ICU until at least tomorrow evening.
They said that instead of being twisted 90%, it is now 60%. They were able to correct his curvature 30% !!!!!
Maybe that doesn't sound like much to just read it. But trust me, it will help him dramatically. And hopefully as time goes by and he grows the rod will help to continue to correct the curve even more.
He will have his next surgery --barring any complications-- in 6-8 months.
I will let you all know how he is doing in a few days. Thank you All So VERY VERY Much for your prayers and wishes.

Now, I have to go find a friends dog. I let him out earlier to go potty and he took off chasing a squirrel. I've spent an hour looking so far. He just disappeared. Anyone seen a Jack Russell?

Update: Treas just called me, Corina just called her, apparently they are having problmes keeping Khyler sedated for the intubation, they continue to give him sedation and his Blood Pressure has bottomed out twice............He will be ICU until at least Weds.

All thoughts and Prayers are appreciated..............

Oh the Jack Russel was found and has been returned to Treas..................

PS-- Message to shawn from Treas--Prayers seem to be working today.........
