Just wanted to give a quick update on Claire! Her surgery to repair her cleft palate is scheduled for March 4th, two weeks from today. She will also have tubes put in her ears as she has fluid built up due to her inability to equalize pressure in her ears (normal for babies with clefts). We have heard of quite a few cleft surgeries being cancelled (even the day of) due to not enough beds for after care at the Stollery. We’ve been praying that Claire’s surgery would not be bumped as this would greatly affect our upcoming trip to Asia. Please join us in praying for our requests:
-that Claire’s surgery would go as planned on March 4th
-that the surgery itself would go very well and healing would go perfectly
-that the Lord would give us strength, wisdom, rest and peace as parents
-for comfort, healing and joy for Claire (she has to wear arm splints probably for about a week after so she doesn’t touch her mouth)
Stay tuned for another update soon on our upcoming trip to Asia and how you can be involved!
