We are heading out soon to the beginning of the process to correct Sophia's heart!
Today we will have a cath procedure to diagnose which will last four hours and then four hours of recovery. During that time we will meet with the surgeons and find out what tomorrow will bring. Her surgery is scheduled to begin around 8 am (her prep at 6:30 am).
Please keep the doctors (today Dr.Ringle, tomorrow Dr. Vrecela, as well as Dr. Thompson her cardiologist) in your prayers. Please pray today for the boys. Jesse's anxiety over this is really showing. He doesn't want me staying at the hospital. Ben and I have gone through times of peace and times of feeling sick to our stomachs over this and so pray that we can rest in God's peace that surpasses ALL UNDERSTANDING!
Pray for Sophia...She is so joyful in the midst of this and so strong. Pray that she feels deeply God's arms around her and His protection. Early last evening the sky was beautiful with really unique clouds. Sophia pointed up excited and then leaned her head back and threw her arms out and just said "ahhhh!" as she deeply stared at the sky. I said God is up there and the angels are all around you huh...she waved her arms around looking up and said Angels!! We were in the Walmart parking lot and she got a lot of smiles!
We know we cannot control anything right now but we do know that God can and is and in that we are choosing to rest.
Thank you for your love for our family!
