Psalm 46:1-3, 7
"God is our refuge and strength, and ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though it's waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. ... The Lord Almighty is with us; The God of Jacob is our fortress."
|Mr Boy's Easter Egg Hunt|
I was extremely nervous about taking him in, especially since I knew the Dr would cause him pain during the visit. We prayed a LOT and then I gave him the anti-anxiety medication, (which was prescribed for Mr Boy to take for Dr visits and procedures) for the first time, which made me more nervous, since I didn't know how it would affect Mr Boy and if it would be enough to keep him calm and out of pain, but it worked perfectly!! It kicked in right away and made him hilarious. He was very outgoing, giggly, silly and drowsy the whole time. He even didn't mind being laid on the bed and examined by the doctor. When the doctor caused him discomfort, he would say, "owwww," and then continue pointing out the fun characters and colors painted on the ceiling. It was absolutely wonderful compared to the typical, horrible fear and screaming during visits. Just knowing that Mr Boy would not be negatively affected emotionally, by this Dr visit, made a load come off my shoulders. Mr Boy was so funny and happy during the visit, I was still giggling and happy even when I heard the surprise that Mr Boy would need surgery.
The surgery is going to be on Monday at noon and they blocked out 4 hours for it, but it may not take that long, it all depends on what they find when they go in and what they decide to do about it. We have a very specific prayer request for the surgery, for an outcome we think will make life so much better for Mr Boy and eliminate the need for the painful things we have to do to him each evening, which make him fearful and anxious about bedtime. If we didn't have to do those things, it would be amazing. We don't want to go into details on the blog due to the private nature of the surgery, so we just ask that you pray that the Lord's will be done and that Mr Boy's quality of life and health be improved.
