This Tuesday we are headed to Children's for Carson's shunt surgery. We have had made it through a full year of borderline monitoring and finally decided that a shunt placement would be best.
I needed this year...Because of this year.
I know about shunts.
I know that they are helpful and necessary when your child has hydrocephalus.
I know they are sturdy and stable and do not hinder activities.
I know from many that their child showed improvement after receiving one, even though they didnt feel that there were any problems.
I know about the surgery and all the proceedings, and still I know it is considered a minor surgery.
I know that the Lord is in control, and He has allowed the hydrocephalus to accumulate thus resulting in the need for shunt placement.
I know that He has heard my prayers.
I also know that even though I am far better prepared and accepting of shunts I am terrified, and I am not ready for this next challenge.
I know I need you to please keep Carson, and me in your prayers this week.
I know you will.
