Because We Need All the Prayers We Can Get

This is my adorable, amazing 4 1/2 year-old niece, Bug.

She has grown a lot since she made this face:

However, her attitude remains quite unchanged. Which is good, because this little girl has had to go through a lot in her very few years. She already conquered and bounced back from open-heart surgery. Now, on to brain surgery. She has what is known as a Chiari I malformation. To fix it, and keep her from developing all sorts of unfortunate problems, the doctors have to perform an operation. If you have a thought or prayer or two or five to spare, if you wouldn't mind sending them her way tomorrow, I would be forever grateful.

Sometimes life is so unfair. And yes, I will send prayers her way all day today. Hugs to your family!

We will definitely pray for her and all of you who have to watch her go through such hard things!!! I thought cleft palate surgery was hard when my baby was 6 months old, but I can't imagine how hard this must be!!!
