Day 4-Nothing big

We didn't do a dang thing today, and thats just the way we wanted it. We ate breakfast, lounged around in pj's watched tv, played and just enjoyed time together. Ahhh...it was bliss.

As I type this I am sitting in Malachi's hospital room. He is fighting sleep but content in his crib playing. We have already met Dr. Scott and Dr. Smith. I was and am still in awe. These 2 men are God's gift to our family. We are very, very thankful that we are here in Boston.

Surgery is at 7am tomorrow morning. It sounds like they will be starting with the left side of his brain first followed by the right side. Each side takes about 4 hours, so we are looking at a 8-10 hour surgery when you include time for sedation and prep. I will be sure to update this as we hear things. We love you all and thank you for the many well wishes and prayers.

Please continue to pray for our little fighter. Here are a few specific prayers requests.

*Pray for the surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists and all others involved with the surgery. Pray for steady hands and strong minds. Pray they get a good nights rest and they all get to the hospital safety tomorrow.
* Pray for Malachi, as he is going to endure all the physical aspects of this. Pray that he gets a good nights rest. Pray that God allows both sides of his brain to be operated on tomorrow. Pray for no more strokes.
*Josh and I need prayers for calm minds. We are worried and scared, please pray God gives us peace.
*Pray for our families as this is so difficult for all of us. Continue to Pray for Nana who is fighting her own battle with her heart right now.

Tomorrow is the day we have been waiting for, praying for and fighting for. We never knew where this ride would take us, and although it has been difficult at times, we are so thankful we decided to follow God and get on.

Malachi will be Moyamoya and when he does we will give all the Glory to God!!!
