If you have time around 7 a.m. Friday . . .

. . . we would love your prayers!

Claire (top of the pyramid) is scheduled to have a tendon lengthening surgery in St. Louis at that time.

The surgery should take an hour or so. We’ll go back to the hotel for the remainder of Friday to rest and be near the hospital just in case we have any problems with pain. Claire is pretty tough, so I don’t expect anything out of the ordinary.

Specific Prayers:

– that the surgery itself would be complication free

– that Claire would respond well to the anesthesia (she has had problems with this before)

– that the end result of the surgery would be the best possible outcome: normal walking, running, and dancing!

This was Claire’s memory verse this week (Deut. 31:8):

And the LORD, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.

UPDATE on Monday @ 8:30 a.m.

Claire is off to school this morning! The cast and walking boot only slows her down slightly. She came home with narcotic pain meds and muscle relaxers, but I can barely get her to take Ibuprofen! No sickness post-surgery. Thanks for all your prayers and encouragement.

  1. Some tears feel so good, like the ones this post made me cry, thinking of that brave wonderful girl and how completely she has changed our whole world and how amazing, how miraculous, how you’ve-definitely-won-me-this-time-God it would be to see her walk and run and dance like you’ve described. God bless the surgeons, every single one. My prayers are yours tomorrow at 7, Claire Baby!
