Plane tickets bought. Yawkey House reserved. Hotel reservations made. Everything is in place. Now if my heart and mind would settle. We leave for Boston in 14 days. Levi will have several tests done, a heart cath, and then open heart surgery. It will be his third one. We are praying it will be his last one. That a repair can be made. Levi is always so brave. He never asks questions or complains about his surgeries. He's had 8 in the 22 months he has been home. But heart surgery is hard. It's scary. Last week he started saying he is scared. I don't blame him. Please pray for peace for him. For the doctors to have wisdom and discernment. For a biventricular repair to be possible. For an uneventful and speedy recovery. For siblings left behind and siblings that are coming, but unable to be with me at the hospital. For peace and wisdom for Mark and I.

"Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; He will neither fail you nor abandon you." (Deuteronomy 31:8)

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-7)
