Brennan's Journey

The support Brennan has received is overwhelming and incredibly humbling. There is a growing number of people who are asking us how they can help Brennan through his journey and our main focus and priority continues to be prayer for Brennan, his overall health and for the doctors. But so many people are wanting to help even more. For those that feel led to help Brennan financially, a "donate" button is now available. It is linked directly to a special account for Brennan and his long road ahead. Any amount is greatly appreciated. I wish there were words to express our gratitude for all of the support and prayers B is receiving. Thank you to all and God Bless.

6 Months Post-Op

We had a follow-up appointment with Dr. Lewin today. I still can't believe it has been almost 7 months since his "New Ear" surgery.
It was a quick appt. They took different pictures from different angles. Brennan doesn't have to wear tape on his arm anymore! AND... he probably won't need the "stage 2"/second surgery!!! It's such great news. Dr. Lewin said that we will see how his ears look as he gets older and we can decide then if we need to make any changes, but for now, it looks great and she doesn't think she will need to do any touch-ups!!! We are so excited!!! His right ear technically has stage 1 microtia so she couldn't match his new ear perfectly to it, so there will be a difference with both ears... but that's fine with us. We don't expect perfection. We just wanted to give him 2 ears and we are so very pleased with how it looks. We will just wait and see when he grows up if she can do anything "non-surgery" related that might help match his 2 ears better.
Also, we don't have to have another appt. until 6 months from now (his 1 year surgery anniversary), then once a year after that.
Here are a few picts from today...

This is one of his pictures from Febuary, 1 month before his surgery. Notice his "little ear"

I needed to pin some of his hair back for the pictues to show his ears better

He looks thrilled doesn't he? :)

Taking pictures

And a picture with Dr. Lewin of course!!!

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers this past year. It's almost been 1 year since his first surgery. We are so thankful that his hearing has improved and his new ear is healing perfectly. We've had a tough year but seeing how well Brennan has done has been a huge encouragement to me and strengthened my hope! Thanks for taking part in our precious little guy's life!!!
