surgery tomorrow

Hello, family and friends. I just wanted to ask you to pray again for us as Delie has surgery tomorrow (Wednesday) at LeBonheur in Memphis. The doctors in Tennessee agreed with the doctors in Birmingham that there was nothing they could do to restore her vision, so they'll be removing her eye tomorrow. This is the first step towards having a prosthetic eye. We think she'll have to wait 4-6 weeks to heal from this surgery before they can fit her for the prosthesis.

Delie's still doing great. She stayed up later tonight to eat "breakfast" (a bowl of cereal) since she can't eat after midnight until after the surgery tomorrow. I asked her when she went to bed if she was nervous about tomorrow. She thought for a while and said, "Ummm...not really. I've been there before so I know what to expect." I guess this may be harder on Beverly and me than it is for Delie - I hope so for her sake.

Thank you again for praying for us.

God BLess you and your family today. God is already showing his work by the strength that he has given your little girl to face these obstacles with such courage. God is always with the little ones so you can take refuge that even though you can not be with her during the surgery God will be. It sounds like to me that you have a very special and strong little girl. I will say a prayer for your family this morning.

I have read some of the blogs through our emails that we get from our church. Our Prayers are with you today. God BLess.
