We head into Children's tomorrow morning at 6am, surgery is at 8am. The surgeons said it takes 4-5 hours to complete.
A few prayer requests going in:
1. That they can get Eve's IV in smoothly... it's not fun when they have to try several times.
2. That she's not scared when she goes back.
3. Wisdom, knowledge, skill for the surgeons and medical team.
4. Stability for Evie's body during the procedure.
5. That God's presence will be felt in the surgery and recovery rooms.
6. Quick recovery!
I'm not sure if I have explained the actual surgery that she is having... the short version is that they are going to make an incision from ear to ear, and cut her forehead bones into 3 or so pieces, take them out, reconstruct them with space in between, attach them with dissolvable plates and screws, put it all back in, and sew her up.
She will have drains coming out of her incision for the first day, and from my understanding when they take the drains out is when the swelling is the worst... around day 3-4 post-surgery.
I will update from the hospital, but seeing we have to be there at 6am tomorrow (which is like the middle of the night for people in this house!), this will most likely be my last post before we go.
Thanks friends, Love you (:
28 Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
29 He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
