Surgery date changed

November 22, 2009 at 2:51 pm 9 comments

There was a conflict with December 11th so Polly’s new brain surgery date is Thursday, December 17th.  Hopefully, this date will stick.  It is the first of two procedures that need to be done for her Moyamoya so the second surgery, God willing, will probably be mid-January, four weeks after the first.

Ive known about the date change for a few days but didn’t feel like posting about it.  It was discouraging to hear we have to wait longer.  But Polly seems to be completely restored from her stroke.  We pray every day that she won’t have any more seizures or strokes before the surgery.

All I want for Christmas is my little girl home and a successful surgery.

I’ll write a longer post soon.

    I’ll keep praying that everything goes well with Polly’s surgery and may God be with you and your family and the doctors.

    I can imagine this weighs heavy on you all. I pray there will be many lighthearted moments to help you all through this waiting time. And I pray for Polly to remain strong and stroke-free! Thinking of you often!!!

    I know that the writer in you must feel like you need to compose these long, emotional posts to show the world what’s happening in your heart.

    But the reality is that you don’t need to do that. Simple updates just to let us know HOW to pray are more than enough.

    Just know that you and your family are so loved by many.
