More miracles needed for Bodie
They still don't know what made him so sick, but they're working on that.
The troubling part is just how fragile Bodie is, as we've clearly seen in the past month. To put it into perspective, at CHLA, approx 85% of hypoplasts who make it through the first surgery make it to the second. When I asked the doctor today if Bodie was more likely to be in the 15%, he confirmed that yes, Bodie's complications make that more likely. He also said that he didn't anticipate that Bodie would be able to leave the hospital before his next surgery, the Glenn. He also said that while the Glenn surgery typically makes most kids really strong (almost as "normal" as heart healthy kids), he did not expect it to do that for Bodie. While it will definitely make him less fragile, he will continue to be fragile.
So you can see, it has been A LOT to take in and Bodie needs prayers for another miracle. God has protected him so far and helped him to continually beat the odds. We have faith that God has great plans for our sweet son and that He will continue to protect him. Please, please, please pray for a miracle for Bodie and that he again astounds the doctors and makes them revise all of their expectations for him!
