Westin's Surgery

Well.... I have been terrified of this day for a while. Westin has surgery on Thursday. We have to be there at 6:00am and surgery is scheduled at 7:30am. We met with Dr. S. today and he walked me through some things. We registered with the hospital etc. and it took a million and a half years to get everything done. I had to miss rehearsal today with my Girls....ugh I was not happy about that. I only get to spend so much time with them and I was not happy to be stuck in a waiting room.

I have a million different emotions going on right. First my sweet perfect babies smile is about to change. I am so excited for him but sad too because he has had that perfect smile for 4 months.

I am terrified about my little guy going through surgery. I just keep praying that God will protect him, but I can't help and wonder "what if" I just keep praying that God to please not take another child from me (Selfish right? We should all wish to be in God's Kingdom) But I want more time with my babies. I think its total legitimate fear considering Luke's passing.

I do ask for prayers. Please pray for Westin, for his surgeons and that everything will go perfect! And please pray for me, this mommy is trying to be brave, and faithful but it has proven to be a hard task this go round.

My prayer for this week: "For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand & says to you, Do not fear; I will help you" Isaiah 41:13

Below are some pictures of Westin's progress ...

Happy Birthday Westin!
