Just got a call from the Doc to tell me Shepherd's line came out this morning. He doesn't have any more safe sites to put one in because of how many he's already had. Because of his need for one right now, they feel the only good option is to take him to the OR and give him a more permanent line called a broviac. They will have to make a cut in his chest and put one in.
Please pray that if there is a better option, God will make it clear. Please pray for our peace and that we wouldn't grow weary or discouraged, but would instead grown in our perserverance. Please also pray for Shepherd's protection in the OR. I hate the OR. I hate seeing my son rolled away from me and I hate to see his limp lifeless body when he returns from the OR all drugged up and hurting. Please pray we would be filled with peace if this is the best choice for him. Pray that we would be grateful for things that can help Shep. Thank you all for protecting our hearts in prayer.
