J-man's surgery has been scheduled for July 1.

He'll be OK... I'm the one that needs prayers. I may have a nervous breakdown before it happens. He'll never know that. I can't show him how worried I am.

But he wants it. It was his decision and I will always support him 100%. He is going to be scared to death once we tell him. But the kid is amazing. He is so brave and strong - even though he doesn't realize it.

He has been through so much in his 12 years... and he will be bed-ridden when he turns 13. Isn't that going to be an awesome story to tell his kids someday?

Oh well. Whats done is done. It is scheduled... we have to prepare for it now.

I know how nerve wracking that can be! Yikes. You will be ok, and I'm sure that he will be, too.
I will anyway, but I'm sure that things will be fine :)

Biddie said...

Oops. I will PRAY anyway.

Prayers and good thoughts and probably neat stuff in the mail for J-man come time.

And for you now!

Is it surgery scheduling time or what?

I'll be thinking of and praying for J-man too.

This will definitely be a character building experience for him that he'll remember for the rest of his life.

I'm sure everything will go fine.

I'm sorry, I've been on your blog for about a year, what is wrong w/ J-man?
Whatever it is, I will pray for him (and you and hubby). What a big 12 yo! Taking care of his sister! Yay!!

He's going for it, huh? I'll say lots of prayers for him and you.
