Surgery Tomorrow Morning

     Sawyer has his G-Tube surgery early tomorrow morning.  We would greatly appreciate your prayers for Sawyer and the doctors. 

     Within the next hour, Karen and I are going to tell Sawyer about the surgery.  We have learned that hours of anxiety is better than days.   As anyone could understand, he will not be receptive to having something else surgically attached to his body. 

    After we break the news, we are going to party with Sawyer's favorite Cold Stone Ice cream (cotton candy) and his choice of movie (Kung Fu Panda 2).  We will party by his bedside tonight  because we have to start dialysis extra early.  He needs to get the full 10 hours of dialysis prior to check-in at the hospital before the crack of dawn.

     As you pray for Sawyer tonight, please ask for peace in his heart.  He is a tough little guy, but he processes all of this stuff.  Karen and I have been burdened all day as we face the reality of this procedure and telling him about it.   So we'd appreciate your prayers too.

Praying for each of you as you endure one more step. Prayers for Sawyer that he will be at peace and that the procedure will go smoothly. Romans 8:28

Praying that everything will go well and that the peace that passes all understanding will be upon Sawyer.
