Surgery is set!

Devos Children's Hospital called today, and surgery is set for 12:25 next Tuesday. This is later in the day than her other surgeries have been, so we're a little nervous about keeping her happy without food in her tummy, but at worst, its only a few hours. Surgery will last 4 1/2-5 hours they predict. This means that we may not be able to see her until dinner time. We will keep people updated as we get information, but I may not have time to post anything until Wednesday.

Please pray for her surgeons. She'll have her palate repaired and tubes put it, so there are 2 doctors working with her.
Please pray for Ross and I as we transition into new feedings. Pray for patience.
Mostly, pray for Annika as she goes under anesthesia and through surgery. Pray that recovery will be quick and that she won't be uncomfortable or in pain.

Thank you!
