Please remember to pray for this sweet family - and Maddie's upcoming eye surgery on June 1!
We appreciate prayer for:
1. Jeremy and Renee - that God will give them peace and comfort and take away the anxiety they have over this surgery. In February, they were given the "all clear" from the doctor and were so hopeful that Maddie would not require surgery for another year. Then the sling in her right eye failed in April.
2. Pray for the surgeon. They have complete confidence in his skills. Pray God will control his hands and give him divine wisdom in the procedure. Muscle from Maddie's head will be used to open/close her eyelids, rather than the synthetic material. Doctor will repair both eyes. He says he is going to improve the look of her eyes and that this should hold for several years! Oh, if only that could be true!
3. Maddie - that she stays well. That she does well in surgery and comes out of anesthesia without difficulty. That her recovery goes well. She recovered extremely well and fast after the first surgery (no bruising, swelling diminished quickly, no discomfort), and we hope for the same results.
This is a good view of how this very fun, bright little girl looks today. We are anxiously awaiting her "new look" and perhaps improved vision, since we expect both eyelids to be more open!
Thanks for praying! May God receive the glory in all things!
