Take Two

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Look what I found amongst my pots and pans this week:-)

Tomorrow will be a second attempt at surgery.

Tomorrow I will hand my baby over to yet another Doctor.  

For them, this is procedure.  
Its routine. 
…To me, its my precious, helpless girl, and yet I know that the Hands that have held her all along will be cradling her.
Tomorrow, she will go to sleep under heavy medication.  
The surgery will be invasive. Of course medically, statistics are in her favor.
…To me though, Ill spend the hour while she’s in surgerey wishing away every minute and longing to have her back in my arms
Tomorrow, we’ve been told to expect fever.  
To expect vomiting.  
To expect coughing up blood (the procedure involves squirting sterile fluid into her airways and lungs to clear mucous out of the way for the probe.  When she wakes, it will feel like pneumonia and she’ll have to cough up all the junk in her lungs.)
…Im expecting Evie to be a fighter.  To be tough.  To be resilient.  
My daughter is my hero!
Psalm 91:11 “For He will command His angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways”.

    The Hines family will be praying! Much love to all of you!
    (P.S. many thanks to Mandy for all the encouragement before Soren’s birth, and many thanks to Abi for my beautiful picture! It’s still on my fridge!)

  • I will be praying and thinking of you sweet friend!!!
    And I just LOVE and am completely envious of ALL the beautiful hair Evie has – her and Lauren are just days apart and poor Lauren still barely has any hair….
    I will check in on you tomorrow…

    I am praying for you all, especially Evie. Remember that God does exceedingly, abundantly more than we ask or think to ask. God bless you today and always.
