Last post we were waiting to hear from Dr. Newkirk on some particulars.
Caleb's surgery should take 5-6 hours and is scheduled to begin at 7:30 AM. We will need to be at GUH at 5:30AM. Leaving Leesburg around 4:30AM but as my Aunt Neysa says: "You never can really sleep that well the night before surgery." Mark and Caleb usually can but not me. :-)
We should expect a 3-7 day stay in the hospital.
Caleb will be "recovering" for a couple of weeks and then within 3-4 weeks after that back to a normal routine (and if you know the Allen Fam, "normal" is anything but NORMAL around here!)
Daniel's high school graduation ceremony is on June 5th and our church's "Family Retreat" is June 25th. Also my niece Heather is having her 2nd baby on June 3rd so I am hoping to be able to help with her precious 14 month old Maddie that morning while Myra is at the hospital with Heather and Dave as "Little Davey" is born!! An event filled exciting summer. This is Caleb's last summer before he graduates next June, he really has plans for a fun-filled summer so please continue to pray that surgery goes well and for a quick recovery! Our God is so good and faithful!!!
