Cade's upcoming surgery

Cade will be having surgery on Wednesday at Dell Children's Hospital.  He is having a scar revision done and internal closing of his g-tube site.  The surgeon said he will close up any openings below the skin when he does the surgery.  He told us Cade will have to spend one night in the hospital for observation, and they will be administering pain medications through the IV.  I'm not looking forward to spending the night in the hospital, but I am happy he is having the surgery.  It feels very final, like we are closing that chapter in our preemie journey book.  I am so thankful that he now loves to eat because I know feeding issues are an ongoing challenge for so many former micro-preemies.

Please keep Cade in your prayers.  Pray that everything goes as planned and we experience no complications from the surgery.  Pray for wisdom for the surgeon, and pray that Cade does not experience a lot of pain.  Thank you all for continuing to pray for us.
