Tomorrow is my second surgery (2 in weeks how fun is that????) bright and early at 7am tomorrow. I met with the surgeon today and it is a bit more major than I understood before...basically the same incision as a hysterectomy but a much deeper and tricky procedure :( Anyhow, I want to be honest here and say that I am weary, I am scared and I hate that I will have to be away from my kids for one, possibly two nights. I know in the big scheme of things, this is such small potatoes compared to so many surgeries etc. But I also know that we are called to be honest and help carry one another's burdens, so would you mind praying?
* They are operating dagerously close to the sciatic nerve, if it gets damaged I will have leg and back pain for the rest of my life. Could you pray for protection that they won't damage it?
* Please pray for my kids. I love them so incredibly much and it is hard on them when I am gone or in pain. Especially Ravenna who keeps hugging me and saying "I don't want Mama to get cut again." usually with tears in her eyes. They will be fabulously happy with their grandparents who all take such incredible care of them.
* This will be a rare night (or two) when I am not there to tuck them in, and it breaks my heart please pray for peace for us all.
Thank you so much, I know God is so much bigger than all of this and that your prayers really matter.
