Thanks for your prayers for our boy. He is doing better. He is still not able to run or play, but he is not experiencing any pain, which is good. He will get his stitches out on September 17, so we are hoping for him to be back to normal by then.
You can continue to pray for his neck, though. It's so strange, because he has been the picture of health his whole life, and now he has these two things right at the same time. His neck is very swollen and tender just below his left ear. His range of motion with his neck is very limited. The docs aren't sure what it is, but they (and we) are monitoring it very carefully. Thanks for your prayers.
One sign he might be feeling better:
This came home with him yesterday. Umm...yeah. There you go. A little unusual for Levi. Not so unusual being the child of Angela Cottrell. HAHA Just kidding. Yes. No. Yes.
Levi's teacher brought a stack of get well cards from the whole kindergarten class Friday afternoon after his surgery. He was ECSTATIC. He looked at them a million times. Plus, he loves his teacher, Ms. S. So, he decided to write Ms. S a thank you note. We sent the note with him to school yesterday. Then, we got a call from Ms. S yesterday afternoon. Guess what Levi snuck in the card?
One hundred and one dollars. Seriously.
Angela had just been to the bank. And she had that cash stashed in her purse. Apparently, Levi's love language is GIFTS. Because that is quite a thank you gift for some get well cards from kindergarteners. I guess he is more fond of Ms. S than we realized. : >)
