My Sweet Evan

My Sweet Evan
On my way from Heaven

God delayed my trip that day

He said that I was special

and then sent me on my way

but not before he kissed my ears

He left his Blessed mark

to carry with me here.

He whispered in my ear right then

that he loved me without a doubt

and then he closed my ears up tight

so the whisper won't get out

Home Away From Home

So it has been awhile since I have posted... For that I apologize but ALOT has happened. Evan's left ear reconstruction was on Oct 15th. The surgery went really well and the ear looks fantastic. Words could never express just how wonderful Dr Reinisch and his staff are! We went home after a week as planned. I washed the ear the first week and on the second week we washed it again. When I washed it the second week after being back home I noticed a large scab on the bottom lobe. Once I removed the scab I saw that Evan had an open spot on the bottom lobe of his ear and I could see the Medpor implant. This was due to a very active 3 year old and probably the cup rubbing against the bottom of the lobe. Just one of those things that happen.... So we are back at our home away from home, in Los Angeles. Evan had surgery today and the procedure only lasted an hour. He done really well in recovery and is finally sound asleep. We are not wearing the cup so it will probably be a long night for me. Keep Evan in your prayers for a speedy recovery and pray that the new skin used to cover the Medpor takes. I have prayed over him several times today. Sometimes I forget to only rely on God when I need him and he has reminded me of that today. I think we all seem to do that at times. Evan is such a trooper and Dr Reinisch has become his friend now. I remember back in May with Evan's first surgery and how terrified he was! He has gotten quite used to Los Angeles and still likes to go to his favorite place where he shared sweet times with his friends Luca and Olivia. We miss them terribly!!! As you can see from the pic I posted Evan now has 2 ears!!! Isn't God fantastic. He sure how showed me how miracles work and how blessed we have been. Remember to praise him, in good times and bad times :)
