Tomorrow's the Day...

Isabella's surgery was pushed back to 12:00 on Tuesday and we have to be at the hospital by 7:30 so they can do some lab work. The surgeon said the surgery itself will last about 2-3 hours but could go longer if they decide her spine is unstable after they remove the tumor. If it's unstable, they may add pins and screws but they really won't know till they get in there. He expects her to be in the hospital about a week and on her feet by the time she goes home. She'll be at home, but not in bed, for a few weeks afterwards and won't be allowed to go back to school or be involved in any activity (she may be getting a home teacher too).
She's fast asleep in our bed tonite...not really worried about going tomorrow though she's nervous about the IV, which was the worst thing about her last visit.
Please pray for peace for her, her siblings and Bruce and I. Please pray that the surgeons hands are guided by God to heal her. I'll try to post once she's out of surgery.
Thanks to all the friends who have sent cards, meals, helped with the boys and covered us in prayer!
