The Big Day

Tomorrow is Matthew's surgery. It is scheduled for 12:30pm and should last about an hour, maybe a little longer. I spoke to the nurse at the surgeon's office Friday and they are going to go ahead and check the other side while he is under anesthesia. We have to be there at 11:15. Fortunately, I'm still pumping breastmilk because he can have a bottle tomorrow morning as long as he is finished by 6:30. I'm planning to get him up in the night, around 11:30 or 12:00, to give him an extra feeding. Just because.

Of course, I'm anxious about the surgery. But I'm more anxious about the anesthesia. I'm just praying that everything will go fine and telling myself that babies have surgery every day, many of which are much more severe and intense than what our little bear is having done. Somehow that makes me feel a little better. A little.

I know many of you have already been praying for our sweet boy and we SOOOO appreciate that! Please pray that everything goes smoothly with the surgery/anesthesia, with no complications. Also, please pray that he won't be screaming hungry in the late morning. He does love to eat! Hmmm, guess he gets that from his Momma!

I will update tomorrow afternoon/evening when I have a chance.

Thanks again for praying!
