Tomorrow is surgery day. We have to be there at 6:00am, surgery should start by 7:30 and last between 5 and 7 hours. I posted more about the surgery here.

Specific prayer requests:

*Please pray for wisdom, confidence, and thoroughness for the surgeons.
*Please pray that Jackson's little body tolerates all it is being put through.
*Please pray that the plastic surgeon is able to use the gracilis muscle (the more expendable muscle of the options).
*Please pray that Jackson recovers quickly and fully.
*Please pray that ALL of the cancer is removed and that nothing is left behind.
*Please pray for calmness, strength, patience and peace for Ryan and I.

We appreciate prayers so much. Thank you for continually lifting our sweet boy up.

The past few days we have tried to stay busy and have fun! We did have to go to the hospital to get registered and have a count check (just barely above 1000--still not near as high as we expected, but ok for surgery) but it was a pretty uneventful visit.

Jackson also had another playdate with Jadon. They have so much fun together!! We also played at home alot, spent some time with some special cousins, visited the park a couple of times, went back to gymnastics today and got some cool new Buzz Lightyear shoes yesterday :)

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

  1. We will be thinking of Jackson and your entire family tomorrow, and hoping for a fabulous outcome.
    Wishing you all the strength you need to face the next step.

  2. I have not stopped thinking about you all! Love and prayers being sent your way today and always. XXOO

    Oh and I had to say how much I love all the fuzzy blonde hair growing on Jacksons beautiful little head! ;-)

  3. Praying so hard for you today!

    Love the verse you have on the end of the post.

  4. Hope surgery for Jackson went well yesterday...the whole family was in my prayers. Continued prayers for his recovery...

    Peace be with you

  5. Hi. Please count me in as a new friend who will keep Jackson in my prayers.
    Blessings and faith,
