Andrew has been just as excited about his surgery as he was about his birthday! I'm so glad he is still young enough to not be afraid of the pain. What a huge blessing.
Here he is showing his family where the doctor is going to cut. The only problem is, is he got the wrong spot! It is on inside of his ankle! He tried marking it with a pen like the doctor did.
I feel like we have prepared him as best as we can. This is the first surgery we have ever had to go through with any of our six children. What a blessing that is!
We will be taking Lily with us. Lily is not weaned yet. Steve's folks are going to meet us at the hospital in Portland. Nana Diana is going to take the other three children. God worked it all out even though it was in the middle of the week. Thank you, Lord!
Please pray that this will be a success and that the pain would be minimal. Also, that there would be no complications with the "sleeping medicine" as Andrew calls it. I hope he doesn't get nauseous.
Thanks everyone! Love you all...
Oh, BTW, my bloggy friend Ruth over at Dare to Be..., made me a blog button, so if any of you are encouraged by my blog and want to share it with others, feel free "grab it" and put it on your sidebar.
