Emergency Surgery & A Birthday Party

Posted by admin in Surgery

They have recently found two nodules around Evan’s liver. The test results from having a biopsy have come back inconclusive, so the next step is to have his chest cavity opened up again, because making a small incision is dangerous with him not having any abdominal muscles to hold everything in place and protect against the incision. So now he is home for the weekend and is scheduled to return to UCLA on Tuesday to go in for another major surgery in which the nodules will be removed, cadaver abdominal muscles will be grafted in so he won’t have the football stomach.

On top of that, Friday was his birthday. Evan’s a big 2 years old now. The best part about all this is that since the doctors scheduling didn’t work out that Evan got to celebrate his birthday and will be able to run around in the park for his party before he’s out of commission for a little while till his large incision heals and learns to use his abdominal muscles.

So Happy Birthday EVAN! Pictures to come after the party on Saturday.
