Just wanted to send out a quick posting....letting all know that Ford will be undergoing Heart Surgery at 1:00 pm tomorrow (1/24/08). This is rescheduled from last week due to the infection he had to overcome. This surgery will close his PDA passageway which will help him take the steps forward that we have been praying for. We are aware that this is surgery, and anything can happen....but we believe that this will be the best for Ford in the long run. Even though recovery from this type of surgery takes time...Dana and I know that Mr. Ford will make a speedy recovery. As for his tough little brother Hayden....he has had a rough last few days. Hayden has decided to retain all of his fluid, so he now looks like a handsome Sumo Wrestler. He has had to rely on more oxygen to get through the days...but we know that he is turning the corner and will be slowly making progress. We continue to lean on all of you...and ask that you say a little prayer for Ford's surgery and Hayden's oxygenation issues tonight and until we are fortunate enough to take them home with us. Thank you again from the bottom of our heart for all the great stories we continue to receive from all of you. I will let you know how the surgery went as soon as I can.
Trey, Dana, Ford & Hayden
