It's Gavin's big day tomorrow! We are so glad the time has come! I feel really bad that he has to go through another surgery, but this one should make him much more comfortable in the long run. This will be his 5th surgery and I was saying to Joel last night that I'm not a bit worried anymore when he goes in for another one. It's kind of sad, but it's like taking him to the doctor. It's just another appointment. The only things that worry me are that it won't work and make him more comfortable and that he will be in pain from the surgery for the next week or so. So, these are some things to pray about for Gavin.
His surgery is scheduled to begin at 11 A.M. We have to be there 2 hours before. The boys are spending the night with grandma, so the morning should go smoothly. Gavin is expected to stay for 3 days or so. They are putting him in the I.C.U. for the stay. I am very glad about this!
I have another cute Caleb story for you. We have vacation bible school at our church this week and the boys couldn't go today because of all I've got going on here, but tomorrow grandma is taking them. I told Caleb this and he got a big smile and said "I'm so proud about that!" Then he went on to tell me, "Mom, did you know that you're not supposed to steal from your neighbor?" I said, "That's right!" Then he said, "You're not supposed to bug your neighbor, you're not supposed to bug your neighbor's donkey or his wife or anything of your neighbor's." I had a hard time not laughing out loud! Then he said, "That's what Pastor Freswick says in church!" I told him he was right! I'll explain more to him later, for now I think he has down what he needs to know! I thought if I told him it's actually coveting that you're not supposed to do he'd get confused. Plus, the fact that he thinks it's to not bug your neighbor is probably a good thing for now!
Keep those prayers going! We appreciate you and them!
Love, Alicia and Family
