Surgery Day

Today is surgery day...if I could kidnap my family and take us all to Mexico right now I would. I know I'm not having major surgery, but just the thought of being cut open sends chills down my back. It's different too, now that I have my kids...I feel a loss of control, I guess, thinking about laying there in the hospital and not being able to take care of them. It's a good reminder that I'm not in control...God is and that brings me comfort. I know that the kids will be well taken care of by my mother & sister and will have a great time. When I told Caedmon yesterday that he was going to Aunt Shanna's house, he wanted to go right that instant. Thank you all for your prayers...I have felt them. I've had a peace about it all week and even today I'm surprised how peaceful I feel. I still want to go to Mexico though...maybe I'll go there in my dreams during my surgery...Cancun sounds nice. Surgery is at 1:30...keep praying.When I am afraid, I will trust in you. Psalm 56:3

Sherri, I will keep praying for you today and esp. at 1:30. I was praying last night that you would have peace for today, and all that it held... and I'm so glad that you feel it today from God.

The picture of you and your kids is just priceless. YOu all have such joy on your faces. So cute. Love you, Heather

I just checked your entry, and you are probably in surgery right now.

I'm glad the kids will be well taken care of, and that they were happy to go with your family.

Praying for a peaceful and quick recovery!

If you were ready for an international trip, you could go to Guatemala and give Joe some much need family kisses! Keep us in mind next time you want to skip the country!

Ashley, That sounds like a much better idea than Mexico! I would love to attack Baby Joe right now with tons of kisses!
