The purpose of this blog... way back in 2008, was to keep our friends and family updated about our journey with our son Brennan. Little did we know how it would be used to help other families, most of whom we have never met. We have been able to share our joys, struggles, heartaches and triumphs throughout the years as we have prepared for and now have been through the various surgeries, Dr. visits and many appointments to help our son through his Microtia/Atresia... including, of course, all of the other difficult and exciting times in our lives along the way.
I truly believe that all things happen for a purpose and with our journey we have ventured through, I wouldn't change it for the world. It's helped us lean more on God, grow closer as a family,and gain everlasting friendships with people we wouldn't have crossed paths with otherwise. Brennan has grown so much through it and I can't wait to see what else is in store for our little guy!
I'm hoping to make it easier for other Microtia/Atresia families to search my blog. Throughout the past 2 years I have documented his whole experience with Atresia repair surgery and Medpor surgery for Microtia. I've documented his journey with pictures and journals for how things went for each post-op visit, daily and weekly. It was good for me to be able to post pictures for friends and family and just type away and vent sometimes. I also knew that it would be helping other families in the future.
I'm hoping I can set up links that will take you directly to the Atresia repair surgery info or the Medpor Microtia surgery info. I'll also post more pictures of Brennan's ear! The best thing is when people say... "Which ear is it?"... ha ha! It's such a wonderful thing!
I'm also hoping the info and pictures I've posted throughout the last couple years can bring encouragement, hope and education to other Microtia/Atresia families!
Please feel free to email anytime if you want more info!
