It's A God Thing Saturday-Sunday Link-Up!!

Luke (8) and Jack (3) are scheduled to have their adenoids removed next Wednesday. We'll get up as the sun is rising and make the 45 minute drive to Children's Hospital in San Diego.

Although it is a routine surgery, it is still surgery. I am uncomfortable with using the word "surgery" with 2 of my boys' names in the same sentence.

Charlie (5) was somehow genetically given the free ride when it comes to damaged adenoids.

So as I struggle with my worries for my babes, I ask that you please pray for them.



Pray for everything to go as planned. Pray for no reaction to the meds. Pray for me to be calm for them.

Thank you, friends.

Much love,

please know that you are in my heart and prayers in a special way. my youngest son has some issues that require him to undergo major surgery 2-3 times a year at Johns Hopkins. his first (and most extensive surgery) was just done in March. you will be surprised how you will tangibly feel the prayers of the saints carrying you along through this. when you see them after surgery, it will be hard...but you will be sooo surprised how quickly they will bounce back like nothing ever happened! trust me, i know:) when i thought i would be tending to my little boy, i was actually trying to get him to slow down! i had another mother whose little boy has had many surgeries praying for us, and it was awesome! i am counting it an extreme privilege to be able to lift you up in the same way now to my father!

Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Erin said...

Oh my, both at the same time?!? Will be praying for their surgery and a speedy recovery (with lots of Popsicles!)

Brooke said...

Okay, I remebered you said that you had to have this done, but didn't realize you were doing two at once! Yikes. Okay, it will go fine. It is scary...... but they will do great. Buy some special juices and treats that they will be excited about enjoying post surgery. (I think the worst part was trying to get Dylan to take that icky medicine.... oh, and the bad breath!)

Michele said...

Praying for Jack and Luke AND you!
I'm going to link up an older post, it's heartfelt but older.

Karrie said...

They will do fine, prayers that you keep yo' cool!

Best of luck to both of your sweet boys - speedy recovery!


katie said...

Thanks for all the love ladies!!! I appreciate your prayers. Pray hard that the boys get better from their colds. We cancelled last time due to colds and I really don't want to have to cancel again. You all rock! xoxo

Praying for your sweet little guys and peace for you. xx

Danyelle said...

I'll keep you and your boys in my thoughts. I know how you feel, even though it is routine surgery, it is still you baby.

Charla Liedahl said...

I will definitely keep your little guys (and you!) in my prayers. My Nolan had surgery in September and did great, but it was emotionally hard on me! I know how you feel!

The Miller's said...

I pray everything went just as planned and for supernatural peace to be poured upon you! You are an amazing Momma! Your children are blessed to have you!


Melissa said...

I know surgery can be scary. But it'll be worth it. Saying that the recovery for this will be easy is an over statement...more like no recovery. And no more snoring or sinus infections. Hope all goes well and you and the boys will be in my thoughts and prayers.
