Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our five kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

And he's out!

They took Axel into the OR about 5 minutes ago. He was hillarious on the happy juice! Laughing so hard he could barely breath. LOL

The surgeon did decide, after watching Axels stretch armstrong impersonations that the halo is an absolute necessity so no more questions about that!

This is the very last picture of Axel's head without scars. We sure love our little spider monkey!

Praying!
I bet it feels like a bit of a relief just to get the show on the road. He is too precious.

Just got back from out of town and did a whole bunch of reading to catch up with you. Keeping Alex and you and fam in my prayers today. Especially for the surgeons that their hands will be guided. Sending much love you way.

Ohhh, sweet boy. I hope everything goes smoothly for him and that he handles the halo well. I'll be looking forward to the updates today and over the next few days.
