Please Pray

We have so much to be thankful for. We could never count or name our blessings. I know we don't face anything compared to families in other parts of the world. I am trying to keep everything in perspective. Claire has been fighting ear infections and strep throat for the past 2-3 months. As soon as she finishes as round of antibiotic, it seems like everything starts all over again. After scarlet fever and RSV on top of strep and an ear infection, Bucky and I decided to take her to an ENT. We went Friday and he recommended tubes and to remove her tonsils and adenoids. We are trying to schedule the surgery for this Thursday. Because she is so little, we have to spend the night in the hospital because there is a risk of bleeding after removing tonsils. I am nervous but ready for her to have some relief. I know she won't understand or remember this, but I sure do wish it was me instead of her. I will keep everyone posted. Prayers are appreciated...

We'll be praying for sweet Claire (and for you and Bucky). I know this has to be tough for you both! Love, Robin

We will be praying for Claire and I know that she will feel so much better after surgery! Savannah had her tonsils/adenoids out at 20 months and she recovered so fast! Cooper had his adenoids out and tubes put in at 12 months and they have made a world of difference! Keep us updated!

We'll be thinking about you guys and praying that everything goes smoothly and that Claire has a quick and easy recovery. I've heard this surgery makes a HUGE difference!

We will definitely be praying for all of you and Claire's doctors. I hope the surgery and recovery go as smoothly as possible and Claire gets to enjoy every flavor popsicle she could name! :)
