Today is another BIG surgery day for Carter. After a very restless night, he is already completely exhausted. Yesterday was an extremely busy day for Carter. After four attempts to place an I.V., Carter received another blood transfusion in order to get him ready for surgery today. They have already placed more blood on call to the O.R. just incase he needs more today. Unfortunately, he was unable to receive my blood due to timing. Thank God for blood donors! His surgery is scheduled for 10am eastern time. Brandon and I are both anxious and ready for the surgery to be over with. As a mother I am already dreading handing Carter over to the O.R. staff. He usually cries and holds on as tight as he can to my shirt. Sometimes I think that is the worst part.
Please pray for Carter today. Pray for his body to tolerate the surgery and to heal without complications. Pray for guidance and wisdom for the two Surgeons and two Urologists involved. Please pray for patience for both Brandon and I. Thank you all so much for all of your continued prayers!
For I know the plans I have for you, "declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
