Today’s Good Morning Girls reading is in Psalm 12.
But I wanted to share with you something I am facing in real life – so if you don’t mind, just for today, I will bypass our reading and share with you a prayer request.
My son has been suffering from pain in both of his feet for about 2 years. He loves sports and I have shared some of the photos of him playing football, basketball and doing karate. His pain has become debilitating at times – hence the feet in ice buckets after games. I love seeing that smile – I’m so proud of how tough he has been through this difficulty.
It started with Alex limping around the house in the morning (and sometimes sliding down the stairs on his bottom rather than walking down because of foot pain). We took him to the Dr. and they gave us some braces and shoe inserts. They have helped tremendously but the moment he takes them off to do barefoot activities (like swim or run around the house with the puppy) within about 20 minutes of high activity – he experiences pain.
After multiple Dr. visits and getting a second opinion – he is scheduled to have corrective foot surgery Friday morning on one foot (and then later in the spring on the other foot). This will entail a cutting of the bone, a bone graph and metal implant.
And mama and son are just a wee bit nervous about all of this.
I pray that this relieves his pain and that after a week or two of bed rest, a month of a cast, and a few weeks in a walking boot – he’ll be up and running with no more pain!!!
That’s my prayer. Will you pray this all goes well with no complications please?
And if you happen to have had a surgery like this or been through this with your children – and have any words of wisdom or comfort – I’m all ears. I’m holding it together well for my son but inside I have butterflies.
Thank you for your prayers!!!!! I have the best readers in the world and appreciate it!
Walk with the King,
Since I am not able to write on Psalms today – I really hope you will hop around and read what the other women have been writing this week!
