Today was Case's second (and not last) surgery. I started to feel pre-surgery jitters yesterday. I thought his surgery was scheduled for 1pm today. About 6:30 last night the surgery department called to tell me different. Turns out his surgery was at 8:50am and his arrival time was 7:15. That meant we needed to leave home around 4:30am. Dan worked half a night then we headed to our second home. Once on the road I felt better. Jitters left, peace came. This special boy needs a strong momma and that strong momma (usually) is me.:) Every thing went great! The surgery totaled 3 and a half hours (crazy, right?). After surgery we talked with the doctor. All went well. Parts of what needed fixed are fixed and other parts will be fixed in 9 months or so. Could be 2 or more surgeries. Case was admitted to a room and is resting well.
I'll tell you what, I fell even more in love (if that's possible) with this AMAZING boy then ever. When I took him back to the OR for anesthesia he was wide awake and in good spirits (last time he was sleeping). They had me hold him on the table while the put him to sleep. He cried hard. It took a little longer then I expected (maybe a minute or two) for him to go to sleep. When I left I said a little prayer for him and heard, "I got this". :) peace immeadiatly overflowed within me. He's got this. There is nothing to worry about.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
