Pre Surgery Update

Today was the 6 hour marathon testing at TCH. Parker was a champ, endured all the test with his charm and didn't fuss much even when they needed to do a second blood draw. For some reason we never seem to get the orders right for Parker and blood draws..last time we had to go back a week later since they didn't draw enough blood. Parker had lots of fun pulling the EKG stickies off, that boy is in to everything! After being there all day, the nurse said there was a chance we'd be rescheduled, WHAT?! They have several sick babies that the perfusionists are tending too, so if they don't get well, no surgery for us. The Dr's office did call a little while ago to say we were "a go, barring any unforseen issues.." so please pray these babies get better and we go forward. Pray for the surgical team, Dr. Fraser, Dr. Mossad and anyone else that will be handling our precious boy tomorrow. Pray that there are no complications, that it is an uncomplicated repair, and that Mike and I get a few hours sleep tonight. The boys are in Huffman playing their last game for Sectionals. The weather is "iffy," so add a prayer that the rain holds out just a few hours more! We report to the hospital at 6am tomorrow, surgery starts at 7am. Not sure when I will get a chance to update here, but check our caringbridgepage for updates.
Blessings!!! Looking forward to a healed heart!!!


  1. Praying for sweet Parker!

    Isaiah 41:10
    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.

    Deuteronomy 31:6
    Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."

  2. Caydence and I will be sending Parker and your family our prayers tomorrow. Hopefully it will go as perfect as her surgery did and he'll be back home in no time :)

  3. What a cutie! We'll be praying for your little boy and have confidence that God will be holding his sweet little boy in his hands throughout the whole procedure. Prayers for peace and patience for you parents, and wisdom and skill for the doctors. I'm sure Parker is going to be well and smiling in no time!

    I have not given you a spirit of fear(II Timothy 1:7)
    Cast all your cares on ME(I Peter 5:7)
    I will never leave you or forsake you(Hebrews 13:5)

  4. You are all in our hearts and prayers today....wishing Parker and his Doctors success in surgery, and a peaceful healing period following...
