Well...our doctor's appointment did not go as we had hoped this morning. Our sweet boy's little heart is getting worse, and he is scheduled for surgery on Thursday morning. I am feeling overwhelmed and quite sad at the moment. It's such a scary prospect to know that your 7-week-old baby is going to have major surgery. I hadn't prepared myself for the possibility of things moving so quickly, which is making it all seem so much scarier.
I am clinging to the fact that God is still in control, even when I feel like things are very much out of control. Truett's name means 'small and honest' and I can't help but think of how true both of those meanings are at this point. He seems so small to be facing all of these big things, and he is still so sweetly innocent.
For my entire adult life, I have loved 2 Corinthians 9:8...And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
I am very much relying on God's grace to sustain us in the coming days. My faith is being tested and strengthened in a way unlike anything I've experienced previously. I have always believed in God's sovereignty, but it is a difficult thing to really let go of that which you hold dearest and to surrender it to the Lord in such a tangible way.
Friends, will you please join us in praying for this precious boy? And for the medical team that will be performing surgery on his little heart Thursday morning? And for our family as we walk through these hard days ahead?
