Pray for Benjamin

Hello! I am safely back from my AMAZING trip which I will soon share all about!

I am exhausted after flight fiascos at the airport. I will post more soon on all of that.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could pray for little Ben tomorrow. He has to be at the hospital at 8:15 and surgery is at 9. It is a minor procedure but he will have to be put under which is scary! It is likely to be a rough few days. I will keep you updated. Please pray for Ben and for the doctor performing his surgery that all goes smoothly and recovery is quick.

Thank you all!

I hope all goes well with your son's surgery. I will say a prayer for him and your family!
I found your blog a couple weeks ago and have been touched greatly by your encouraging words. I have not experienced the hurt that your family has, but having heard a story like yours I treasure every moment that I have with my little girl and I'm so grateful that you have helped me to cherish every moment.
I'm actually introducing myself to ask a question. I am involved in our women's ministry at church. We are coming up on the first birthday of a little boy that was taken to Heaven on the day of his birth. I would love to do something for his mother, but I'm not sure exactly what to do. Do you have any ideas? They would be greatly appreciated! My email is or you could leave a comment on my blog. Thank you!

Hi Kristy,

I will be praying tonight and tomorrow for Ben and for you to have peace about it too. It is hard not to worry but the Lord has it covered.
I love reading that your trip was amazing. Looking forward to hearing about it.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

We will be praying for Ben today. I know putting a child under is scary. Dominic had to be put under in May, and it was a hard day for all of us. Praying the surgery goes smoothly, and Ben recovers fast.

I was so happy to hear that Ben's surgery went well, i hope the rest of the day wasn't too horrible for him!!
Maggie was worried about him today when I told her he was having surgery. We prayed for Ben and she had to say a special prayer for Luke so he wouldn't be scared either!
Can't wait to hear about your trip, and I was praying that your flight beat the storms yesterday, but from your post it seems not.
We're coming home TOMORROW so i'm hoping to to see you this week!
Love, Ginger
