Eye Surgery Tomorrow

Gwyneth's surgery has been scheduled for 9:45am tomorrow. We need to be there at 7:45, which means we'll be leaving home around 6am. Gwyneth can't eat/drink anything but clear liquids after midnight tonight.


Thanks for your prayers.

Nate

Bless you both Nate. How can we pray for you? Is there anything we can do for you? We would, if you asked.

Blessings,

My four year old is having dental surgery next week so I know a little of the anxieties associated with a child being under anesthesia. I'll be praying!

How do you think she'll do without breakfast in the morning?

brunettekoala said...

What kind of surgery is she having on her eyes? OUr daugther Mayson is going to have eye surgery soon too. She has congenital estoropia. I am scared to death of her upcoming surgery!

I found a family in need of prayers...Wondered if you could post their info so everyone can include them in prayer.

We will definitely be praying!! Praying that the surgeon has a steady hand and that Gwenyth will go through it with flying colors. Praying that all is taken care of tomorrow and no further surgeries are necessary! May God give you the strength that you as parents need to make it through. May He give you a peace that surpasses all understanding! In the name of Jesus, Gwenyth will be HEALED COMPLETELY with no further complications with her eyes!

She'll be in my thoughts and prayers, especially for the npo part...it'll probably be the hardest on her, huh?

You have and will continue to be in my prayers especially tomorrow. Two of my sons have recently had eye muscle surgery. It went very well and the recovery time is so fast. After a long nap, they acted like nothing happened. I pray that Gwyneth is the same way. It's far harder on the parents than the kiddos I think.

Jennifer said...

I will be praying for your ears (when Gwyneth realizes she's hungry) and your hearts (when Gwyneth realizes she's hungry). I pray that the surgery will be on time so that she won't have to be hungry any longer than necessary.

Love you guys.

Paige said...

You are all in my prayers! My son just had the same surgery on Friday.

It was rough for him coming out of anesthesia (some vomiting), but the rest of the day he was just groggy and his eyes burned. The next day, he was running, but still a little sleepier than usual. He still rubs his eyes (not supposed to), but is doing great today! There's a picture of him and his demonic-looking eyes on my blog. :) I think this was taken the day of or after.

Praying for you all.

Maryam's Mommy said...

My daughter is also a micropreemie! Maryam was born at 25w2d, weighed 1lb10ozs. She had lazer eye surgery for Stage 3 ROP when she was about 8 weeks old. My prayers are with you. Anytime our little ones have to have surgery its difficult. My punkin has had 3 surgeries, I know how you're feeling.
Good luck tomorrow! Your family has a lot of prayers being said for it.

I'll be praying, Nate!!!!!

Many prayers will be offered up for your sweet angel. I hope this is the "cure" for the problem so that she doesn't need anymore surgeries. I hope time passes quickly while she is in surgery.

Shan said...

Praying that she just sleeps all night, and you can just take her still snoozing in her jammies. Praying for skill for the surgeon, peace for Mom and Dad , and a quick and pain-free recovery for the little peanut!

I love the picture....it's like she's saying "okay dad, the surgery is tomorrow? I'm gonna be fine, dad, I am, I promise." We'll be thinking about and praying for you all. We will be facing surgery with our baby girl soon, so we know the anxieties and worries (no matter how "small" the surgery!) that are probably running through your heads. It's hard to see our precious, priceless little ones go through any pain or trauma, and ANY possibility of something going wrong is pretty hard to handle, even if it's remote. God bless you tomorrow. Hang in there, present your requests to God, and eat some extra chocolate!

Marsmile said...

Be prayin' and thinkin' of y'all, especially sweet Gwyn! :-)

laurie said...

Praying for your sweet baby today and for you and Tricia as you wait for her... praying that the Great Physician continues the great work He started in her

Kim M said...

I'll be praying for both of you as her parents, Gweneth and medical team as Gweneth has her surgery. I'll pray for peace and comfort for you and Trish. Praying for wisdom and accuracy for all attending Gweneth and praising God for all he has brought you through and for what lies ahead.
Will be watching for an update.
