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.
On this Pathway,
