Sticks and Stones

and broken bones...
He really did a number on himself. His surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning (9/15/09) and I'm a wreck! The doctor will be cutting a hole in my son!? A 6 inch hole! moving around muscles and such to make room for the broken collar bone! He'll be re-arranging it as it was before the break and adding one of these...
a metal plate! You see all of those holes? That's where the screws will go! 8 screws! into my baby boy! Please pray that I survive this! Please pray for his speedy recovery, Please pray?!

I will... he will be ok, and so will you, cause we mommies are always stronger than we think. Dear Lord, take Lore and her family (and the doctor performing the surgery!) in your loving hands, help them through this ordeal.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I worked in an orthopedic hospital for many years, and those orthopedic guys really know their stuff. Your son will be fine . . . now if we can just get the doc to sneak you some valium! :) You'll be fine. I'm saying a prayer right now for his quick healing.

You can count on my prayers, too. When Sadie had her tonsils out I remember what a wreck I was. I made the doctor promise me he would pray before he did the surgery. Seriously. God answered our prayers. I know he will for you, too. Just trust Him.

I broke my collarbone (among other bones) when I was nine years old. Seeing the x-ray makes it worse though, somehow.. I hope the surgery goes well.

(My six year old broke his arm real bad last year, but it all worked out okay in the end...)
