Big Prayers Needed...

The time has come for us to make a life changing decision and plan. Adam and I will be having a very important meeting for discuss a surgery that Gavin will most likely be having later this week. We want to talk with the doc before we give you all the details but we really need some big prayers. We are both kinda tired but we need some serious clarity of mind this afternoon.

And -- the pee pee prayers are working! Gavin made a small amount of urine this morning about 30cc's and it looks like his kidneys are in recovery. We spent the day down in ultrasound looking at his vascular system, liver and kidneys and then headed to echo to take a look at his heart. He also had an eye exam looking for fungus in his eyes. So far all clear!

We are now just waiting to go to the OR and get that yucky line out. I'll give a detailed update tonight -- be prepared it going to be a long one.

Father, I thank You that You gave Gavin and Maddie to Adam and Karen...specifically for them to raise these two children. Father, I ask that You continue to give them wisdom...this is so hard to comprehend...what is asked of us as parents...but Your eye is upon them. Thank You for encouraging Gavin's kidneys. God You alone know what is coming, what needs to be done. Grant them unity in the decisions they must make and cause Your peace to fall upon them. Strengthen Gavin's body, mind and spirit for today's surgery. Grant their doctors wisdom and understanding of his condition as they treat him. Father, this seems so hard, so unimaginable, yet You, Lord...Your grace is sufficient. in Jesus name, AMEN
