Surgery and a Prayer

Ainsley is going to have surgery on Tuesday morning. It will be a minor surgery which should have us in and out of there within a couple hours. We are confident in the abilities of our surgeon but, nonetheless, it is still surgery and it's our baby girl who's having it! She will be under full anesthesia and the doctor will go in through her belly button to either remove something (if he finds anything to remove) or just close the hole which should have already been closed once her umbilical cord detached. Thus removing the little "bubble" thing from her belly button and it no longer will ooze. The only way to know exactly what the problem is, is to explore inside. The reason to do the surgery is two fold: 1) If we were to leave it, it will eventually get infected which could be painful and cause more of a problem. 2) If it was left as is then down the road (like when she's in her 30s or so) it would probably become cancerous. So, we decided to air on the side of caution and just get the surgery out of the way. The healing process is short, only about 2 days, and it shouldn't be too sore (however we will have medicine for her just in case). Anyway, like I said before, we feel she's in good hands but we are still a bit upset at the idea of the whole thing. Please pray that the surgery goes well and that Ainsley will be as pain free as possible. Thank you. I'll let you know how it goes.

Oh, guys, I am so sorry to hear Ainsley is having surgery. I am sure it is all going to be just fine just like the doctors have assured you...it still though must be really scary for you. So Caleb and I will pray for your beautiful little girl and well also pray for you and Andy to be strong for each other during those crazy few hours of uncertainty. Do something really nice for yourselves once you have a moment to breath. Love you -- Anna
