Prayers for Joshua please

Tomorrow (Fri) morning, we will be going to the hospital for more testing on his kidney.  He will be sedated.  (He is very nervous about this and I made the mistake of mentioning this early in the week!)  I'm not sure how long the testing will take.

He won't be able to eat or drink before the test and I'm unsure how this will affect his blood glucose numbers.  (Just hoping he isn't low!) 

I'm not thinking we are getting any results tomorrow either.  We have an appointment with his nephrologist next Thur (she only does clinic appts on this day).  I would love to hear tomorrow that all is fine, but I'm not expecting to hear anything at all. 

They are looking to see if there is an abnormality that will need to be surgically corrected.  We would obviously love to skip that. 

Next Monday, Joshua has another appt with a different specialist.  We have been told to expect this to end in needing surgical correction.  Then the Thur appt to find out more about the testing being done tomorrow (Fri). 

I'd love prayers for all to go smoothly.  For good results.  For his slightly congested nose not to be a problem with the sedation.  For peaceful hearts. 

I'm thankful that we have access to wonderful medical care in our backyard.  I'm thankful that Joshua is going in healthy and not as an emergency.  I'm thankful that even if there is a problem, that it is something that can be fixed.  I'm thankful that God is with us.  I'm thankful for friends and family who are praying for us. 

with love,
