Not a whole lot to update tonight as we are on the eve on our appointment, but I wanted to update you on a couple of things.
#1. Tomorrow at 215 pm we will meet with Pierce's neurosurgeon to discuss what course of treatment he recommends considering his initial recommendation was completely different than the second surgeon's opinion. Please pray for clarity and wisdom for us and for the surgeons involved.
#2. Because of the differing of opinions and the complexity of Pierce's case, we have decided to seek an opinion outside of Charlotte. We are hoping to have a teleconference (via the internet) with Dr.Warf from Boston Children's Hospital on January 16th. Dr. Warf pioneered the technique that the second surgeon wanted to attempt on Pierce. Because of his vast experience (he's known as the world's leading specialist in treating pediatric hydrocephalus), we've decided we can't go wrong with a consult from him. Please also pray that he would have wisdom as he reviews Pierce's case.
We so appreciate your prayers during this difficult decision making time. We see how the Lord is working and leading us and hope to share one day the many things that are transpiring throughout this time. Just know that we so appreciate the support and love you are all showing and we are so humbled by how many care for us and our boy.
