Please Pray for Bellie...

I am writing to ask for prayer for Isabelle. She is going to be admitted Friday morning to the hospital to have the second of four oral surgeries. As it gets closer I am becoming increasingly nervous, her last recovery was long and hard. Because children with Down Syndrome have such small mouths there is not near enough room for her teeth coming in. That added to the fact she has an extremely high pallet due to the intubation at birth is making her teeth have NO room. The goal for Friday is to remove four teeth and start to "re-shape" her pallet. She is old enough now to have a huge fear at the sight of the hospital so I am dreading that. :( I have not told her yet we are going in. Please pray for a smooth and easy surgery, that her body will handle the anesthesia, and a quick recovery. Last time she bit her lip so many times while they were still numb, it took literally two months to heal bloody lips. We don't want that again. Also pray for good behavior for the boys while they staying with friends Thursday and Friday nights. Thanks for praying. Love, Amy

I am happy to pray, Amy! LOVE the sweet photo, she is precious. I hope you are able to be relaxed and get a good night's sleep, and that everything is incredibly smooth for tomorrow.

You know that Joseph and I will do nothing but hope for the best. Please give her our love and let her know that we are thinking of her.

I just read your entry and know that Isabelle had her surgery today. I will be praying for a speedy recovery and one completely opposite of her first experience. Please call me if I can do anything for you.

Love, Heather M. and family

Hi Amy ~
I hope that Bellie's surgery went great. We will hope to hear soon how she is doing, but we will definately be praying. Please don't feel any obligation to come see us on Sunday so you can spend good recovery time with Bellie. We are definately going to be here a good long while, so there will be other opportunities if you want to come another day. Please keep us posted so we know how you all are doing. Tell Bellie we love her and that Connor can't wait to meet her and the boys!!!
Lovebug Hugs,
Lori, Randy & Connor (Little Bug)

Hi Amy, Just found this site. You and your little family are always in my prayers but I will especially pray for Bellie's oral surgeries to heal and go as intended.
We have been working with Margaret,here. They thought she had a CFS leak but have decided it is Meniere's disease. A couple more medicines and more diet restrictions. Just takes a while to get it under control, again.
We love you all. Aunt Judy and Uncle Dave
