Knee Surgery for MC Tomorrow

Edited: she's back in surgery now, should take 1.5-2hrs. I'll update afterwards if there's still battery in Steven's laptop. Thanks for your prayers!

Mary Clare will have her (outpatient, arthroscopic) knee surgery early Monday morning. Please keep us in prayer...
-that she will be well enough to have the surgery (she has a cough and sore throat)

-that she will not be too scared when we tell her tonight

-that everything goes smoothly with the surgery and anesthesia and recovery

-that this corrects her problem, so that she can run and jump and play and go to ballet again!

-that the little ones do okay while we leave them for the procedure

and for all children who are ill and have to undergo medical procedures, especially those with chronic conditions. I know many parents face this on a frequent basis, and my heart goes out to them. I'll update when we get home tomorrow.

I'll leave you with some cute backyard pictures from this week...

We offered an intention for MC at Mass this morning so everyone there prayed for her. Afterwards our family prayed the rosary and divine mercy chaplet with her on our hearts.

Oh, and the kids wanted me to tell you that they are doing a FIAR in her honor on Curious George Goes to the Hospital. I thought that was funny! :) GraceAnne read the story to them and now they are playing doctor dress up with a real x-ray film :) Earlier at breakfast prayers Joseph said "...and so her parents aren't too stressed." (Gotta love it!)

Lots of prayers coming your way!!!
