Tomorrow is surgery day. Ugh.
The last couple weeks leading up to this have been nerve wracking. I can feel the apprehension rising with each day. I’m filled with dread knowing that I’m putting my baby through something that’s going to be painful and that she won’t understand. It’s awful.
Then, there’s the constant back and forth in my head whether we are making the right decision or not. Logic says yes, but it doesn’t lessen the internal struggle.
I’ve just been saying a hundred little prayers a day that we’re doing the right thing….that this will help….that pain will be minimal….recovery will be quick….that she won’t wonder what’s happening to her.
So, prayers are welcomed today and tomorrow and the rest of this very long week. Our calendars are cleared for the week, which will be a struggle in itself, since we’re used to a series of therapies every day. Here are some specific requests:
-Surgery goes smoothly without complications
-Pain is minimal
-Mom & Dad’s nerves and guilt
-That this surgery will be successful in slowing the dislocation of her hip
-That this surgery won’t cause any regression in her physical abilities
-This round of Botox injections will again get great results
-Recovery will be quick and we can get back into therapies by next week
We easily remember how your prayers sustained us when we were in the hospital with Elena. So, thank you for thinking of us this week and sending up a few prayers.
