Surgery

We have to check in at 6:45am at St. Joseph's hospital Tues Oct 20th (my dad's birthday) for the VNS replacement. I know she will be fine, she has had surgeries before, but I just hate to think of her uncomfortable and in pain. Back when she was going through testing and surgeries, being put under general anesthesia seemed par for the course. But it's been three years since her eye surgery and she hasn't had an MRI or anything, so I'm a little nervous. Plus she is older now, she understands a little more. She doesn't deal well with pain, I can't even brush her tangled hair.
So I'm asking for prayers. Prayers that they don't have to do anything with the cords in her neck and she just has the battery replaced in her chest. Prayers that she isn't in too much pain. And prayers that Oliver is good for Grandma.
I promise to update tomorrow when we get home.

OH, I hope all goes well. It sure seem harder to subject the kiddos to unpleasant procedures as they get older. They understand more and express their displeasure more readily.
But, this one is so important and will be over quickly. Will be thinkling of you tomorrow.
