Since she has exposed bone at the back of her mouth, they will be able to do the surgery a week from tomorrow at Primary Children's under only local anesthetic, and since they’ll be going through the mouth, it should heal very quickly. We’re encouraged by that. This might be easier than we first thought – we’ll see. Katie asked a boy out for Sadie Hawkin’s Dance on Oct 13th, and he just accepted, so she’s excited to get this surgery over with and healed quickly enough to go. I hope it works that way! She is such a social butterfly! Thanks for the prayers and faith - it's doing the trick!

After two weeks of increasing pain, we took Katie for another exam. Diagnosis: osteonecrosis in her facial bone. So we got word yesterday that Katie has to go in for another surgery. The bone in her face is dying, and has to be scraped again. Pam had to get her out of school today to rush up to Primary Children’s Hospital so the surgeon can make a plan for it. She, Katie, is devastated. She’d been doing so well since the surgery in June, and we’d hoped we were all done. So an extra prayer in her behalf would be great.
