When we found out Cole was going to need surgery back in March, I researched everything! During my search, I found this cute little lady...Charlie Claire who had surgery a few weeks prior. Charlie Clair has a twin brother! You can click on her name...it will take you to her blog. Anyways, after finding her blog, I got in contact with her mom and it was so nice to have her there for us cheering us on and giving us advice before, during and after the surgery...because let's face it...nothing can prepare you for what your about to experience....but step by step (along with John's mom and Noah's parents!)...they walked us through this journey we were facing. Charlie Claire had surgery back in February...however those pesky seizures came back because a very small piece of malformed tissue was left, which couldn't be seen because her brain was so swollen near the end of the surgery...Charlie Claire will be having a 2nd surgery (hopefully the last!) on December 7th, in hopes to become seizure free. Please pray for her...we also hope she won't get sick so she can have her surgery as planned. There is so much too worry about in preparing for a big surgery like this. We love you Charlie Claire!!!
P.S. if you need some new lip gloss...go to Charlie Claire's blog, they have Artistry lip gloss (that has a mirror & light on it...pretty amazing if you ask me!)...the proceeds go to Charlie Clarie's medical fund!
P.S.S. Cole signed "more" today day at school so he could get more goldfish crackers!
