It's Time......

It's time to take this little princess back to Cincinnati
for what we hope is her last surgery.

We leave tomorrow 
she will be admitted bright and early Monday for picc line placement 
and clean out, yes I think it is as yukky as it sounds
so please pray for my baby.

Her surgery is scheduled at 7:30 Tuesday morning. 
She is having what is called a "pull through" procedure, 
which was done in China,but needs to be redone.

The hard part will be the no eating or drinking for 7-10 days....
My prayer is that she does not feel hungry due to nutrients through the picc line.

Hank will be heading back on Wednesday to hold down the fort at home
with the help of sweet Lauren (check out her blog).
 She will be keeping John David and Madeline while we are gone
and basically being me, so please keep her in your prayers as well!
We are so very thankful for  her willingness to jump in and be a part of our family!
All the bigs will be jumping in as well after work, school, ect....
it takes a team to keep this machine going:)

Alrighty then
I think this about sums it up!
We appreciate all the prayers!
Please pray specifically for:
our surgeon, successful surgery, rest, no appetite for Janie,
activities to keep her occupied for days:)
John David and Madeline since I will be gone for 2 weeks,
Lauren, that all will go smoothly with no melt downs from you know who
Hank as he juggles work and being solo
Me, sleep!
 If I can get some sleep while staying in the hospital for this extended time, I will be good to go:)

I'm sure I will think of more as we go along.
I'll keep the blog updated as much a possible!

And last but most importantly,
please continue to pray for sweet Ivy Joy!
