Be Anxious For Nothing


Tomorrow is another big day for Brandon.  Tomorrow 7-26-2011, we will be going to Ft. Worth, to Cook's Children's Hospital to have our second procedure done on Brandon's hip.  At our last appointment we had learned that one of the cysts we had removed a year ago April from his right hip had grown back.   We have watched it and it has grown more, so tomorrow we will go to Children's where they will put him under anesthesia, and take him in to do a procedure to stick some rather large needled in his hip bone to drain the cyst (if it is fluid filled) and then to put steroids in where they packed the bone marrow in on his last surgery around the rods and pins that are in his hip and femur.
I would be lying if I said I was not a little anxious about this, yes it is not as scary as the 5 hour surgery last time, but it is still my baby, he will still be put to sleep, to which there can be complications, and he will be very sore afterwards, and I hate to see him hurting.  He has been through a lot in his 7 years of life and some days that makes me very sad.
Please keep him in your prayers tomorrow.  His surgery time is supposed to be at 8:00am and we have to be at the hospital at 6:30am.  The hospital is 3 hours from our home so we will have to leave by 3:00am so that is another prayer request as well, we will need prayer for traveling mercies.  It is a long trip when you are tired and worried, will be even longer on the way home I am sure after the let down from it all and being very sleepy.
Thank you so much for lifting up our sweet boy before the throne of our Heavenly Father.  I know he holds all of this in His hands and that he loves Brandon more than I ever could imagine, which is hard to imagine, but my mama's heart (even with all the scripture I know to tell me other wise) is anxious today and I am sure it will be tomorrow too.
I will let you know how it goes.
Thanks,
On this Pathway,
Jill

I am praying for an easy recovering for your son since I just read your BLOG and he should be out of surgery.

Blessings & Hugs to you as you are in my prayers too.

I know this is really late -- but I hope all is well. I've been so behind on my commenting and reading -- the old shoulder has just thrown me for a loop.

What to know something? I had a day yesterday where my own post convicted me -- over and over. I was crabby and needed to come back and apologize.

Blessings on your today.

Jill,
To say you encourage me is an understatement! Please send me your e-mail, my sweet friend, so I can "chat" with you. You are such a BIG blessing in my life, and your words always build me up and leave me thanking God for His kindness in bringing us together. Love to you and lots of hugs!!
