My Cousin

My little three and a half year old cousin had surgery on Tuesday.  When he was born his skull fused prematurely, causing pressure on his brain.  He should have had the operation to reshape his skull before now, but when he went in for the blood work for the surgery  the first time it showed that he had leukemia.  It has been a whirlwind.  In September we walked in the Light the Night Walk with Michael and he was in remission.  It was wonderful news.  Tuesday the surgery was a success.  So now it is just wait and see.  We will wait, and pray that his little brain will have all room that it needs to grow and develop and that no permanent harm has been done by the excess pressure that was put upon it.  He is a strong little boy, and it is amazing how much he has overcome in his three short years.  We just all pray that this is all behind him now, and that he can be happy and healthy from now on.
