Team TJ: still recruiting members


Hi friends, I need your positive vibes, good thoughts, prayers, etc. for my son, TJ. He’s going back in for surgery this Thursday morning to fix a ventral hernia. His stomach is distended because the muscles never healed after his emergency appendix surgery last September. He feels no pain or discomfort and will proudly lift up his shirt to showcase what a fine belly he has. The surgeon has told us that this isn’t the emergency we faced last fall and because he’s so young, he’ll heal quickly. The surgery will take about two hours and if everything goes well, we could go home the next day. He’ll have to take it easy (no running, biking, wrestling, etc) for a month and a half until his incision heals which is not an easy instruction for a four-year-old boy. It’s been six months since my son fought for his life and we spent 19 days in the hospital so I’m feeling a little raw, my mommy heart heavy with nerves and worry despite what people say. I know it’s going to be okay but if you could join Team TJ, we would really appreciate it.

Thank you.
