Praying Specifically

I am a firm believer in praying specifically, so here are some of the details that need some special attention.

Dr. Baird, the surgeon, and all the doctors, PAs, nurses, and specialists who will be involved in the surgery and care.

The possible complications. The main possibilities are bleeding, infection, and something called heart block. The repair will be made very close to the part of the heart that regulates the heartbeat. Sometimes this part doesn't take too well to surgery and becomes...a little confused. This could mean a permanent pacemaker. Pray that we don't have to go there.

K. She's a worrier and is very concerned about all this and she needs some extra assurance.

Health for the rest of the us so that we can focus on the needs of the girls during this time.

L. Obviously. For her comfort and sense of security. For her body to handle all of the incredible stresses it will need to endure.

I'll try to keep you guys posted on what's happening as I can. We're incredibly thankful to know that so many people are praying and for the many, many offers to help. Our biggest need right now is prayer. Don't worry, if something else comes up, we'll be asking :-)
