Surgery update

Jacob's surgery has now been moved up to September 2nd. The ENT in Boston ants to get this done because he is getting progressively worse. Unfortunately this is his first day of school! I am glad though that he is going to get this done sooner rather than later. The poor kid sounds awful. I am anxious to find out what is causing all of this. His tonsils will be biopsied and hopefully give us some answers on why this is happening. There are a number of things that can be causing this. We have ruled out mono and strep issues. Tomorrow he is having an EKG to be sure all is well for the anesthesia, and a chest xray to see if anything related shows up there.

Poor Jacob!! I will be praying. Hopefully, everything will come back clear...and he will be feeling MUCH better soon!
