I've been contacted several times asking for updates on this little guy, so thought I would post here for anyone who is interested. Sam is now 1 month old! Hard to believe. He's definitely a fighter, but still has lots to get through before he gets to go home. Both of his parents, and his 3 siblings, are all at Mayo this week to spend Christmas with him, together as a family. It's hard to be at the hospital over Christmas, but they are just very happy to all be together again. Here's the latest update from Joy, as of 2 pm Sunday afternoon:
Sam's surgery is the first case today, so will be taking place sometime between 6 and 8 am CST. I know his family will appreciate your continued prayers and warm thoughts. Thank you, on behalf of all of them!
