ok, so the queen part of the dream is not true... but it would make the story that.much.better
it does provide a perfect segue from dream to reality.
reality is that sparky will undergo 2 procedures in the USA tomorrow (tuesday).
my hubby's bizarre royal dream is a clear indication that we are all pretty stressed. (either that or he is eating way too much cheese before bed)
we are asking for your prayers -
for safe travel
for the procedures to go smoothly
for the recovery & healing process (2-4 weeks)
all the specifics that we can't go into detail with because we have to be a bit "on guard".
we are thankful for the medical team - the surgeon and 2 nurses that will be assisting. they have bent over backwards over these last 2 weeks to make all the arrangements necessary. we believe that they are well equipped and prepared to handle his unique case.
it has taken several hours worth of phone calls and consults to make this happen. i have talked at length with the head nurse. we have had much trepidation over this. we have prayed and wished and hoped that this would not be a needed step on our journey, yet here we are. once again, faced with the challenge of taking a leap of faith. graham has been much more sure-footed than i. however, during my last phone call with the nurse, i did finally have a sense of peace wash over me - but, to be totally truthful, in the last 24 hours, i think it washed right over me and kept going...
we are nervous. sparky is scared. it's a lot to handle.
yet, we trust God goes before us. walks beside us. and stands behind us.
please keep us in your prayers
and, of course,
God save the queen.
