Today, Steve and I would be so grateful if you might take a moment to pray for our son, George, who will be undergoing sinus surgery this morning at 11:00 a.m. For the past couple of years, George has suffered from complete blockage in both his nasal passage ways and has only been able to breathe through his mouth.
This condition causes George a great amount of discomfort and is also negatively affects the way his palate and sinus structure are developing. Despite the obstacles George endures physically, he is wonderfully energetic and positive. Steve and I are constantly inspired and encouraged by his joy and positive outlook on life, and we thank the Lord every day for blessing us with such a beautiful soul!
After George's last visit to the ENT specialist in Denver, we were told that surgery was not only necessary but inevitable, and so, after a great deal of deliberation and prayer, we have decided that it is time to move forward with the surgery.
Yesterday, during our consultion with the surgeon, we learned that, due to the structure of George's nose (he has a severely deviated septum), the procedure will be more extensive than originally planned and will also take longer than expected (around 3 hours).
With that in mind, and knowing that George is at a higher risk for complications with the anesthesia due to his heart condition, there is a great weight on our hearts today. Please pray for George's surgeon, Dr. Streubel, for his nurses, the anesthesiologist and of course for George, that he will be graced with courage and peace as prior to the surgery, and that the operation and recovery for him will all go smoothly and be non-traumatic.
We thank you, with all our hearts, and want you to know, sincerely, that we are praying for you and your loved ones today as well.
