Well it is here. Tomorrow is t-day (and g-day!) The whole thing seems very surreal. We really have a peace about it- Every single day this week Faith has had an episode- she really needs a stable airway and that is exactly what the trach will give her. Here are some thing we'd appreciate prayer for:
*For Faith to come off the ventilator quickly. She will need it for a few days, but we are praying that it will not be longer (the vent will hook up to her trach).
*For Faith not to be in pain- no doubt she will be heavily sedated and medicated- but you never really know how much pain a baby is in.
*The trach to stay in- the first week is critical. The trach will be sutured in to make a track- it is very important that Faith does not pull it (we all know HOW that goes- that's what got us here in the first place!) or it does not come out.
*Please pray for the surgeons tomorrow (they are a wonderful team from the Children's Hospital here in Denver). and that God will guide their hands.
*And finally please pray for us- it is pretty nerve wrecking in the waiting room. Please pray that God will calm our hearts and minds as we trust him with our little girl.
The surgery is at 3:30 tomorrow. We are going to be spending the night at the hospital, so we probably won't be able to update the blog until Saturday. We will try to keep in touch as best we can to let you all know how everything went.
Remember- this is another step closer to home! Once Faith is stable with the trach she will be homeward bound! :)
