Pray for Ellis

Yesterday Ashley and I met with an ENT doctor here in Spartanburg and he says that Ellis has a cyst on his salivary gland under his tongue. He will see us again next Thursday to see if it has grown and begin to make a plan from there. The primary treatment for this problem would mean surgically removing the gland all together. Ellis would be fine without the gland, but the procedure is a bit tricky (esp. on a baby). We are a bit nervous about all of this because all three doctors we have seen have said that this is the first case they have seen in a new born. Please pray this week that the duct that is clogged which is causing the cyst would open up and the problem would go away.
