Please keep Bodie in your prayers tonight and tomorrow. His surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning - we're not sure what time yet. We know it's not the first surgery, but will likely be on the schedule second - so, probably 8 or 8:30. It should last 4 hours or so and they'll update us periodically and we'll pass those updates along to you. Then, assuming the surgery goes ok, the next 24-48 hours will be critical. So, we need nothing but to be bathed in prayer for the next 2 days - for Bodie, for the doctors, for the nurses and for everyone involved. We're scared (out of our minds, if we're being completely honest), but we know this is the only chance our sweet boy has at life, so we have no choice. We know that God is control and he has given our sweet boy to us for the time being. Tomorrow, we will hand him back into his Father's hands and we pray ferverently that He will hand him back to us to raise. Please pray with us.
In related news, Dusk got to see Bodie today for the first time since he was born (since he's been sick, he wasn't allowed in the NICU)!!! It was so amazing to see the look in Dusk's eyes when he locked in on his son. :-) We both got to hold Bodie, too, which was an incredible experience. I got to hold him for a while and he just slept in my arms. It was beautiful. Then, the nurse tried to give him to Dusk a little later and Dusk did get to hold him, but only momentarily, since he got super fussy. According to the nurses, Bodie is a fussy little bug. We're hoping it's just because the poor kid hasn't eaten his entire life thus far - and not a reflection on his personality. :)
Here are a few pics of our special day with Bodie today:
