MY PRAYER REQUEST
James, 4 yrs. ,born premature, diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy
James will be having a 2nd surgery this Thursday, Jan. 5th, 2012 at St. Louis Children's Hospital to lengthen the heel cords. Another procedure having to do with the leg muscles is possible dependent upon a pre-surgery evaluation.
The fear is the Dr. will go too deep, lengthen too much, and result in an irreversible floppy head and back (not a very medical explanation but the best I can come up with) James will be under general anesthesia which always worries me because he has lung issues as well.
As you may imagine, I can't begin to concentrate on anything else this week but my precious James. School starts back this week so my Sidekick Scott will return and its time to go back to the orthopedic Dr. to see if #1 husband can return to work after being off work for 2 1/2 months due to shoulder surgery. If you have followed my blog for very long, you know "THAT STORY" LOL!
My Dear Friends, May I ask for your Prayers for my Grandson James.
Pray that the Doctors hands and eyes will work together perfectly as they make the incision, that James will tolerate anesthesia with no problems, that the heel cord will be cut precisely, that no infection will invade his little body, that his pain level will be manageable if not negligible, that his parents will be at peace, and that this surgery will further James' progress toward independent walking.
Here is a video put together by my daughter that chronicles James' Journey from birth till now.
For I know the plans I have for You declares the Lord...Plans to prosper You and not to Harm You, Plans to give you a Hope and a Future
