My Kara has her surgery tomorrow

Tomorrow we go to Bham, Children's Hospital, for Kara's surgery. The Doc is going to repair her muscles that make her palate close properly. At this point it is not closing properly and she can't push the air out to be able to pronouce certain consonants and words. It should be a same day surgery, but if they can't get her to do her functions, she has to stay over night. Last time she wouldn't eat, and so we couldn't leave. Last time they repaired her palatte. Last time she had only been in the country a couple of months and spoke no English. This time though she is further ahead of the game.

So if you think of it, say a prayer for Kara, mommy, and daddy.
Katy is staying with a member from the church. Zach is coming with us. That will be interesting. "Wild man does the hospital, preacher is never allowed back."

I'm praying for you tonight. Nothing harder than being at the hospital with a child. So much love and so much longing. And then of course there are the children one leaves home.

My daughter reminded me tonight that when our son had surgery she ran away from home. (25 years now) Not too far, just the end of the driveway. Still - I will pray for you and the fam - blessings.

Best of luck, and I hope those new consonants will be put to good use!

Oh my. I hope all went well. It seems that you just did this last month.

I just saw this post and prayed, before I realized the surgery was TODAY and it's behind her (and y'all)now. But I believe God (being outside of time) answers retroactive prayers, too. And I'm praying for a smooth recovery.
