In surgery

Joshua was taken back for surgery at 7:30am. We said our goodbyes and once again committed him to the healing arms of Jesus.

Please join us in prayer today as Joshua is fighting for his life. Pray for the hands of the doctors, nurses, and anyone else who is involved in the care of sweet Joshua.

I don't think I have the ability to NOT pray today. I've posted your Twitter feed on my Facebook page. I have friends watching & praying too.

Jill,

Praying for sweet Joshua and all of you. I know how very hard it is to let your baby go into the arms of strangers. You don't know how many times I just wanted to run in the other direction with Logan hoping it was all just a bad dream.

Hold onto your faith Jill. I know that God is holding Joshua in one arm and holding the skilled hand of his surgeon in the other! Through God all things are possible and I believe that Joshua will sail right through this surgery!

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." ~ Isaiah 41:10

I am praying for you. If it's any consolation - it is so much harder on the parents than the children. Ava has no memory of her early years, of the four heart surgeries she had her first nine months, or of any of the other struggles she faced. While I would have traded places with her to take away her pain I think she had the easier end of things in some respects. I am asking God to hold you tightly, comfort you and calm your fears while He watches over Joshua and guides the surgeons today.

I ran across your blog on the SCH group on Baby Center and I just wanted to let you know that you and your beautiful little Joshua are in my prayers. Keep your head up, God is aware of you and your situation!

Praying all day for your precious boy!

Kathie said...

Glad surgery is over and things went well - prayers for a quick, uneventful recovery!

Jill - just saw your twitter post. Yes, it is surreal. Nothing any parent can tell you will prepare you to see your child that first time after OHS. Hopefully it was not too much of a shock (I fainted)

Remember that God has his healing hands on Joshua. Keep believing in miracles.

Hopefully he will come off the vent within the next 2 days. I hope they are allowing you to touch him...even if it is just his little hand or foot. He knows his mama is near....never doubt that.

Praying that all stays the course and Joshua continues to show you how much of a fighter he already is.
