Default Andre's preliminary exam A+

Thank you all, for the support shown by many here at CruiseMates. It is truly heartfelt and overwhelming that people, whom you’ve never met in person, could have such an effect.
I spoke to Andre last night and read all your responses to him. His reply was "Papa, do you think all your friends could come over and play, when you teach me to ride my bike"? I told him "I'll ask, but I think they may be too busy praying for the next person that needs them". He replied with, "In my bedtime prayer, I told God, I'll go to the doctor ok, but I don't want to go to the hospital no more". He was referring to, the nausea effects of the anesthetizing, after awakening from surgery. He was only in the hospital for 12 hours, but all he can remember is, he felt fine going in, but was sick as a dog coming out.
His preliminary exam was better than expected, according to the doctor. The Doctor said, “At this point, it is a very good possibility that he may only need reading glasses, but we will not be sure for a couple weeks when the stitches are gone”. “We also have a 3 month period of ongoing eye and brain adjustments that are taking place.”
Andre will be 4 years old next month and he will be able to blow out the candles without assistance this year. Wendy, my daughter, and her husband Daryl wanted me to pass on their thanks for your concerns and prayers. We also found out that Andre is going to have a sister the end of April or early May.
I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!!!!

PS
I’m sure without saying; guess where Papa and Grammy will be, this coming long weekend? He asked if I could bring some books with pictures in them. It is a very easy way of explaining the many things he’s never seen before. As I’m writing this, I’m positive Grammy is buying every book in Palm Beach County right now.

Jason,


If I could, I would buy all of the books here in our city in Northern Illinois and send them to you so Andre would NEVER be without a new picture to see!!!!! The little guy has 4 years of catching up to do and your family will be rewarded over and over while he does. Thank you for allowing us to share in your overwhelming joy. A new baby sister!! your cup is overflowing with love.

Jason.. just a delight to read such positive results for Andre. Just don't show him a picture of "the moose". Might scare the little guy <G>

That is GREAT news!!

Andre's story reminds me of when DD was little. She had cronic ear infections and suffered some hearing loss. After her first surgery, I remember sitting in the kitchen eating breakfast. She asked, "What's that noise?" I listened, and didn't hear anything unusual. Then I realized that it was a bird outside the window on her birdfeeder, chirping away.

Your grandson sounds like he is eager to learn about all that he has been missing. Best of luck to him... I hope Papa can keep up!!!

I can not begin to tell you Jason how this has warmed my heart. I am so thankful that God does answer our prayers and I am so thankful it was all a big success for Andre. Take care of him and show him all the "good stuff" >VBG< Tell him that as soon ans we get in the neighborhood, I will come over and Play.....I'm serious. I will even bring some new toys, if you dont buy them all up before I get there.>G<
