God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
(2 Corinthians 1:3b-4, NLT)

Late night party :)

Since Faith isn't allowed to eat anything real after midnight tonight, and isn't having surgery until 2:30 PM, she, Dave, and I are having a little "slumber party" of sorts... It is 10:06 PM and she is eating pizza and ice cream, getting ready to watch a movie (and hopefully have another snack or two!).
The anesthesiologist called me earlier tonight to see if I had any questions, and told me that because of some new HIPAA thing, they don't release the medical charts to him until the day of! Imagine his surprise then at learning that this will be Faith's 11th time going under general anesthesia... That policy doesn't make much sense to me, especially for a kid with a pretty complicated history... You'd think they would want the doctors to be as familiar as possible with their patients' histories. Thankfully, the only issues that should be of concern to him are her lack of good peripheral IV access, and the fact that most adhesives basically burn her skin off.
We have to be at the hospital for pre-op at noon, so it is going to be a long day... Hopefully we manage to get some good sleep tonight. Thank you to everyone who is keeping Faith (and us) in their prayers, we can feel them!
