Surgery: No Food For You.
Samuel's surgery is tomorrow. We need to be at the hospital at 11:45. He can't eat after 11 p.m. tonight and he can only have fluids till 9:45 a.m. So he's going to be one hungry boy. My concern is he's already a really tough stick and I want to make sure he's well hydrated because he's going to need a lot of blood drawn in addition to an IV. Usually takes 45 minutes to an hour and a half for him.
Please be praying for all of us. For Libby that she would have peace with all of us gone. My mother-in-law will stay home and be with Libby but I want Libby to know that she's okay. I've been gone for several days so I'm praying this doesn't create any anxiety. For Samuel, that the surgery would go well and that his breathing would be stable after surgery. We will be staying overnight with him... For me, I'm a bit sleep-deprived and trying to get used to East Coast Time. For Mike, that God will give him grace and strength. He just wrapped up his last summer class. And for Fafa/Martha (my mother-in-law) that God would give her grace to deal with Libby in spite of being very tired.
I look forward to sharing more about my trip to CA as well as pictures. I also look forward to telling you that all is well with Samuel!
