Tube Day *updated*

Oh my it is early!

Well today is "tube day". R3 will get his tubes in his ears in just a few short hours. I have been through this with R7 but that was years ago and my anxiety has resurfaced. When I signed all of the papers last week my body started to twitch. At that time I didn't know if it was from filling out the same paper over and over or from the surgery scheduler telling me we owe $ XXX.XX before his surgery date.

I realized when I got home that I was a nervous wreck from the list of "things that could go wrong" during surgery. They will only have my baby back there for about 30 minutes. But that feels like a life time to me. I have prayed for him since the day we found out about the surgery. I know God is in control. I know he will be with the doctors, moving their hands in just the right way. I know He will be with R3 when they take him back and administer the anesthesia. I know He will be with me to wrap his arms around me and give me comfort.

I'm leaving you with a gift: peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn't fragile like the peace the world gives. So, don't be troubled or afraid. (John 14:27)

This is the bible verse I have been reading to calm my mama heart from the jolt it had after I read the list. He is leaving me with peace of mind and heart. God is giving me all I need to get through this morning. His peace is strong and it overwhelms me.

Please pray for me this morning and please pray for R3 as he goes into surgery.

I will post an update as soon as I can.


We made it through surgery. R3 was done by 9 and we were home by 9:30. Thank you for all of your prayers.
