Another prayer answered

Last night we opened a package from MUSC. We were very surprised to read that Lilly's surgery has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 27. This is indeed an answer to pray because we had been told to expect a 4- 6 week wait at a minimum. Her paperwork was just faxed to MUSC by her cardiologist last Friday so our total wait will only be 2 and a half weeks. This is such a relief. We only have 12 more days to be on "high alert for germs!" We also only have 12 more days of keeping our sweet girl on "homebound status."
Thankfully Lilly is well at this time. If there is any cough, fever, vomitting or rash between now and June 27, they may postpone her surgery. Please join us in praying that God will protect her from illness so the surgery can be performed that day. The surgeon's name is Dr. Crawford if you will lift him up as well. I pray that he will be well rested and that God will guide his hands.
I am sad when I think of all that Lilly is getting ready to endure, but I know that she will be a much healthier little girl in the end.
The picture of her sleeping shows her snuggling with her blankie that my dear friend Beth sent her. I hope it will bring her comfort and security especially when we are not allowed to be with her. I will post more specific info about her surgery next week.
I am clinging to Isaiah 41:10. Thank you Jennifer for directing me to this verse!
"So do not fear, for I am with you: do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you: I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

We are praying for Lilly to stay well and for the doctor too...and for Jan to be able to juggle all she needs to do the next few weeks.
love, Rebecca

Hi I'm Holly. My family has also adopted a little girl from China, Grace. I have been following your journey to Lilly for a while now. I just love seeing pictures of sweet little Lilly. I am keeping her in my prayers that all goes smoothly with her surgery and she stays healthy.

I will DEFINATELY be a prayer warrior and pray for Dr. Crawford and everyone preforming the surgery.
