Esther looks great today, minus a few bruises from blown IV's. She has the most serene and blissful look about her. I almost cry just looking at her. Thank you Lord for giving me these moments with your beautiful child.
Specifics to pray for are: no bleeding issues, enough diaphragm to allow for simple closure of the hernia rather than the need for a patch, enough space in her belly for all the stuff that is currently in her chest so there will not need to be an artificial hernia created to make room, and for the surgical team to be lifted up before the Lord for wisdom and skill beyond measure, and for the Holy Spirit to be covering the entire operation.
