Our incredibly tough little Ford is set to undergo surgery this afternoon (8/6). All of our docs have given the go ahead for our Urologist to surgically remove the troublesome kidney stone. According to one of our docs, 40% of grown men would not be able to pass this stone on their own...if that gives you any idea of the size of stone we are referring to. I can't even fathom the pain that our little fighter has endured these past few months. Dana and I know that the surgery will go smooth, and our Ford will make a speedy recovery. We have done a ton of praying, and have given all of our worries and cares over to our Lord and Savior, knowing that he will be working behind the scenes and guiding all of the surgeons and nurses hands during the procedure. As most parents can attest, having your child undergo surgery is something you never wish to experience...and Dana and I would agree, but this type of surgery will cause Ford some overdue relief. Having to watch him grimace every time his kidney is touched or the car hits a bump has been very painful. We have been told that the surgery should last 2 to 3 hours and a few days recovery. As mentioned before, we know that today will be a great day, and expect wonderful results. Dana and I are so grateful to have each and every one of you praying for our children, and love that through the power of prayer all things are possible. So if you happen to have a brief moment in your already hectic day, please say a quick prayer for our tough little Ford that the surgery will go smoothly and he will make a speedy recovery. We look forward to posting great news after the surgery. Thank you in advance for all of your prayers.
Have a blessed day,
Trey, Dana, Ford and Hayden.
