God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Surgery Rescheduled

As many of you know, we have been planning for Anna Grace's Fontan on August 10.  (The Fontan is the actual name of the open heart surgery they will be performing on her).    However, at her cardiology visit last Tuesday after great discussion with our beloved Dr. R and her surgeon Dr B we made a joint decision to postpone her surgery.  As things stand right now her surgery has been rescheduled for November 9.  She is currently on the surgical schedule so I was told that we will be receiving another "envelope" from MUSC with all the specifics.

I will admit, it is a bit of a rollercoaster because you mentally prepare for a specific date as well as logistically prepare for a certain date and it is a little crazy processing the emotions of a change like that.  But ultimatley, we trust that God is in control of the details here and we pray for His perfect timing in this. 

So, we thought we would be in quarantine right now, but instead we have continued enjoying our summer swimming at the pool and having playdates with friends and attending Church.  We are making the most of this time and really enjoying the rest of our summer.

Anna Grace goes back to see Dr. R in late September for another echo and regular cardiology visit.  So as long as everything looks good at that visit we will continue on the path of a November 9 Fontan.

So, please continue praying for the Lord to give Dr R and Dr B wisdom to discern the perfect time to perform Anna Grace's next heart surgery and for patience and peace for her Dad and I as we anticipate a November surgery.  Thanks friends for continuing to follow our story!
