Out of my hands!

I just called the hospital to ask a question about Lia's heart surgery for this week. Low and behold I got a call back from the nurse saying that our surgery had been cancelled. What?! It appears that when I called the cardiologist's office to ask them if there was enough time between the dental work and surgery they did not relay the correct information to the hospital. They didn't seem to understand that it had already been scheduled. The surgeon's office thought we didn't have the dental surgery and thus the heart surgery was cancelled. (All dental work MUST be taken care of before heart surgery.) Now, no one called to tell me this! How was I supposed to know this? In case you are wondering, I am not happy about this, but there is NOTHING I can do about it. Right now I have a choice to make: 1)Realize God has a reason for this and make the most of enjoying today or 2)continue to have the attitude I have right now! So, I am going to put on my big girl panties, put a smile on my face and get my focus back where it needs to be - on the ONE who makes the final plans! Thanks to a dear friend for the reminder of how Satan wants to steal our focus! So, for those of you who were praying, please continue to do so, because this means we are getting that much closer to school starting. For my facebook friends, I love your comments and would love for you to leave them on my blog as well since I hope to have this blog turned into a book in the future for us to keep record of our journey so that Lia can read it when she is older. Thanks for the love, support and prayers!

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

I am sorry for the frustration you are going through but I want to encourage you a little! Just think about God's timing in all of this process. It hasn't been what you would have chosen but He has been so faithful in this entire process from the beginning. He will be faithful to the end. You never know what God is protecting Lia from as He has allowed her surgery to be delayed. Or maybe there is a person who God wants you to encounter during her time at the hospital who is not there now. Continue trusting in Him as you and your family has done in such an incredible way!

I'm so sorry for your frustration (on top of all of the other challenges you have been facing), but I am so poud of your attitude. Thank you for your honesty, and for sharing your heart.

We know God has a plan in all of this, and that He is watching over sweet Lia every second of every day. He will work it out! He will.

Praying for His peace, as you lean on Him.

Just another reminder that it is in HIS timing, and not ours.......sometimes a tough thing for us to grasp.

Prayers and positive thoughts coming your way :)
