Getting ready to say goodbye...

This is our last weekend with Special spots and stripes.
On monday morning our wee Ephraim is going to the hospital for day surgery to remove his birthmarks. They are his own cute little stripes and spots. It has been bitter sweet preparing him for saying goodbye to them. He has been great with all the doctors appointments with specialists and surgeons and pre-op assessments and tours of the hospital... and his surgery was recently bumped up earlier in the morning which is an answer to prayer, as I was stressing about keeping him away from food. How do you keep a 2 year old on a fast?
He seems okay with getting his finger nail taken off, but while he has been okay with that, he has also been emphatic that he is not going to get the one on his foot taken off.

Special prayers for Ephraim today. Hope he wasn't too upset with fasting.

hope all goes well with the surgery.I wish i could offer to help but we are struggling with Liam and his allergies and asthma. Very, very bad time of year for him. We are keeping papa bill and nana liz in our prayers as well as Ephriam and the rest of the family.God does amazing things!
