Surgery time

Emma's surgery will be around 9:30am. We need to be there at 7 and she'll go through pre-op and the x-ray of her neck for anesthesia at that time. We do have intermittent Internet access in our room at the RMH so at least I'll be able to post from here without trying to occupy the kids downstairs. Emma took NO nap today and it's 9pm and she's still kicking around. All the kids are. Brianna's watching a movie and drifting, Emma's playing with snot sounds in a playpen, and Micah's in the portable swing just snorting away as well.

Please also keep Micah covered in prayer. He started with a runny nose this morning and if it continues to get worse he won't be allowed in the common areas at the RMH. Mike just arrived and is trading his car off to my mom so she can take it to the hotel. She'll be back here in the morning and will camp out for the day with all the kids so Mike and I can be at the hospital.

Our room is a decent size- fits two playpens and the double stroller against the wall at the foot of the bed and has two double beds as well. Mom won't want to spend the day up here, but at least there's room to move around if she needs to be up here some.

I will post tomorrow after surgery. Please pray for my girl at 9:30am!!
