Here we are right before she went in for surgery. She was very brave and everything went well. She's so much happier that we're sure she's feeling tons better. It'll take a little while for the results of the biopsy to come back, but it looks like she'll be just fine...hurray! Thank you all for your happy thoughts and prayers!

Say a prayer...

I'm concerned. Olivia is going to have minor surgery on Monday morning. There is a mass on her jaw/neck that has grown to about the size of a nickel and gotten redder and raw looking. And there is a second one starting. They think it is a bacterial infection in her lymph node, but antibiotics aren't making it better. I'm concerned about the mass itself, finding what exactly it is, and the actual surgery. There are some risks.

As all of this has been happening, I of course imagine the worst, and in my mind I jump in between her and God with my arms out and say,"YOU WILL NOT TAKE HER AWAY FROM ME." But just this week I have stopped and reminded myself that He is a just and loving God and my kind Father, so in my mind I hold her to Him and pray, "Bless my child!"

Would you also pray for her please?
