Exactly one month from today we will be in Boston, done with Malachi's pre-op appointment and probably eating dinner somewhere. It's so close I can almost taste the yummy sea food. HA! But it's also so close that I can taste the fear, the worry and the tears running down my face. My sweet pea that has already been through so much is going to be getting ready for the biggest event in his life thus far. And I am worried sick about it.
This is the man that I am entrusting Malachi's life with. He is the guru of Moyamoya disease and the most sought after neurosurgeon in the country. He is the expert and the brains behind Pial Synangiosis surgery and in 1 month we will me him, shake his hand and trust him with our life.
So what is this Pial Synangiosis you talk of? I will let Boston's Neurosurgical Foundation explain it to you. (all information was taken from http://www.boston-neurosurg.org/publications/faq/moyamoyaRMS.shtml
