{31 for 21} Day 19: Tinker with your ticker

Today was the day.

After an early, early wake up, we headed to the hospital.  Everyone we came into contact with was wonderful- so willing to let us know exactly what was going on and how long things would take.

We were met in the holding area by our pastor and our children's pastor.  They both prayed with us before Sweet Pea was taken back to the OR.

When we came out of the holding area, pastor was waiting along with another friend from church.  Pastor stayed with us until Sweet Pea was taken over to the ICU.  We were so blessed to have so many friends come and sit with us while we waited.  It made the time pass by so much quicker.  

Our other kids were kept entertained at home by grandma and papa.  They are having fun, but are looking forward to seeing their sister again.

Now we wait.  Wait for her to come off the ventilator.  Wait for them to start removing tubes and wires.  Wait for her to wake up.  Wait to hold her.  That's the hardest for me right now- I can't snuggle with her.

Continued prayers are greatly appreciated.  The surgery was a success, but she still has a long road ahead of her.


  1. Having our Pastor there to pray with us before they took her was such a blessing! Been praying for you all day and will continue to pray for a smooth recovery.

  2. Praying for you over here Sweet Pea!

  3. So glad the surgery went well!!!! Now you'll get to be amazed at how quickly these little ones recover!
