The Moment of Truth!

Tomorrow morning is Hope's MRI, we'll finally know what's going on inside her.  The specialists have talked about the MRI as though it will finally show us why she was in the hospital last week and what is happening with her heart.  We're looking forward to some clarity with her condition and are also thankful that she'll be presented to the surgical board.  We're not very excited about her being put to sleep for the procedure though.

Please pray for Hope tomorrow.  Her MRI will begin at 9am, so she'll likely be put to sleep just after 8:30 or so.  The MRI is supposed to take 1.5 hours and she should wake up 20-30 minutes after it's finished.  Please pray that she will not have any problems with her breathing and they won't have a reason to intubate her.  Please pray that she won't have any side effects from the medication and will wake up easily without any complications.  Knowing how I feel before this MRI, I can't imagine how I'll feel when we have to hand her over to the surgeon in Edmonton for her second surgery.  This journey sure tests a mothers strength some days!

If you happen to be up late reading this, please pray that I'm able to get some sleep tonight and that anxiety doesn't keep me awake.


  1. I've never met you but one of my friend posts about you on Facebook. I'm praying for you as I lay at the hospital pediatrics with my 4 day old son and I have no clue how parents do this! Praying Hope's MRI goes better then you could hope for!!

  2. Praying for Hope today! It will be good to know what is going on in her abdomen, and to see what needs to be done. She will be great, and do fine! She is a strong little one, and has a smile that melts your heart!
    She will be ok! Maybe this will lead to the Glen surgery earlier, so that it can all be done sooner than later.
    I pray that God will give you strength to deal with all of this, that He will give you patience, peace, and faith to Trust him for He is the Greatest Physician around.
    I sure hope that you were able to get some sleep last night.....
    Praying..with love
