Jayden's Birthmark Update

Jayden's surgery scar is getting a bit lighter. I emailed his plastic surgeon because I was concerned that his birthmark is darker than when he started. He told me to massage it and make sure to put sunblock everyday. It can take up to 6 months for the scar area to heal. We are already seeing an improvement and continue to put our faith in God for his continued healing. Here are some comparison pictures.

Weekend Fun!




B and I went to the Texans game last Sunday. The Texans lost to the Raiders, boo, but the guys had great seats. Eli and I sat in the 600s, but were able to enjoy the last few minutes of the game in the 100s with the guys. I was able to take great pictures too!


Yesterday we went to Jazlene's Birthday party. I enjoyed taking pictures for her birthday and Jayden had a blast with his cousins. They rode a horse, hit the pinata, and had some yummy cake. Enjoy the pictures! The last picture is all the 2nd cousins on the Dominguez side (Jayden's paternal grandma) and that's not all of them : )

Jayden's Follow up appointment


Jayden on Oct. 4. Can you tell he is ready for Halloween? If you can see from picture, he's wearing his Woody costume already!

Jayden and I went to Texas Childrens in the Med Center today to see Dr. Hollier. His biopsy results came out perfectly normal (Praise the Lord!) and the doctor is really impressed at how well he is healing (again, Praise the Lord!). He suggested doing another procedure in 3-4 months to take the last bit that is left. I will send him a picture in 2 months and we will decide from there. We will again leave it all up to God and He will guide us in what direction to take. We are so grateful for His blessing at how well Jayden has done with this process. It's not one we ever wanted to take but comepletely have felt God's presence through it.
Thank you family and friends for your prayers.
Love,
The Gonzales Family

Jayden Update and the Zoo

Friday Sept 30, 2011

Saturday Oct. 1st

Jayden has been doing really well. His scar did not bother him at all, thank God! The scab started to fall off almost a week after surgery. It completely fell off by Saturday, October 1st. We can see a bit of his birthmark is still there, and the rest is showing pink where the scab was. He has a follow up appt with Dr. Hollier this Tuesday, Oct. 4th. We will learn from his biopsy results (we stand in faith that he has no issues to worry about but we always ask for prayers! : ) ), and will ask the doctor what his thoughts are on his healing. I will update as soon as I can from the appt.
We also went to the zoo on saturday. It was a beatiful day and Jayden had a blast at the zoo. His favorite animals are elephants and giraffes. It was definitely packed and we got to enjoy free admission. All Bank of America account holders get into nation wide zoos and museums for free every first full weekend of the month. We enjoyed the Children's Museum a couple of months ago and this past weekend, the zoo.
Enjoy the pictures.
