We got here at 5:30am filled paper work out and met with the surgical team. Cole fell asleep and was totally out, which is very unusual for him. Once he is awake, he usually stays awake. Mommy got to put on a surgical outfit and carry Cole into the OR. They put a mask on him with "the good stuff" and he did great. There were a lot of doctors & nurses in there (about 9). They kept making sure we were ok. They gave us a pager and will update us every hour. I went from dry heaving over the toilet this morning to being very comfortable & at peace once I left Cole with the surgical team. We ask that you keep Dr. William Bingaman and Cole in your prayers!!!! (even though I already know your praying for him if your reading this!)
Cole's surgery is updated every 20 secs. on this screen (his is the 1st one).
Pager updates every hour.
Cuddling with Daddy before falling asleep.
Cole...today is YOUR day...this is where your new journey begins. We are SO blessed to be your parents and wouldn't change this journey for anything! We love the little guy you are & have been...and what ever comes out of this new journey, we will continue to fight for you. We can't even tell you Cole, how lucky we are to have you. YOU are the BEST thing that has happened to us. Thank you for turning us into the people we are today. We love you Colzers!!!! We know you are a special little boy. We want you to know how much we love the Lord, we wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for him. We know the Lord's hand will be with you and the angels who have protected you since the day you were born will be there too! Your in good hands Little Buddie. Love, Mommy & Daddy.
