The Big Day

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! :)

You got it guys! You guys need to be together as a family and just be still. I pray they sedate Faith for a while so she wont pull at the trach and I pray she has no pain. God has that all covered, so no worries!

I pray for the doctors that will be doing the surgery. God already has that covered as well. He hand picked them I am sure!

I know your nerves are probably on edge but you have people all over this country and beyond praying for you.

We love you and will be praying..give my sweet baby a kiss and a squeeze for me!

Hope, Trust, Believe ,Love and FAITH!

God bless you ...We love ya!
Aunt Susan and Uncle Mike

Jen and Brian,

You can count on all 80 fingers and toes being crossed at the Nesbitt household for a positive outcome, and homecoming soon.

Hang in there,

We are praying for her and you guys at this stressful hour...But take comfort in knowing..GOD IS RIGHT THERE WITH FAITH! He is guiding the doctors hand with every cut and stitch! He will MAKE SURE she is well.

He is seating right next to both of you with HIS arms wrapped around you to comfort you and let you know He is in control!
