Pre Procedure Blessings

Overwhelmed with gratitude today by the many ways people have loved on us this week. I constantly shake my head and tell Jason I just can't believe it. We are certainly not walking this alone.  You have all linked arms with us and have held us up.  Thank you is just not enough.  We are eagerly awaiting answers for Noah and tomorrow he will undergo a big procedure at CHLA. It is scheduled for 7 in the morning. He will have a Heart Cath done where they will do a heart biopsy as well as another test to check some electrical stuff.  We really hope this will give us some details about what is causing Noah's abnormal EKG readings and episodes.  We are not sure what to expect as far as how long we will be there.  If they do not have to do anything urgent we will be back home in the late afternoon.  If they do need to do something right away to fix the problem it could be a longer stay.  We will update soon after we hear some details.  They will go through his neck instead of the groin and will give him some verced before they put the IV in so that he will not be as anxious.  We have gone over all the details and have prepared him as best as we can.  He tells us he is not worried but has had many emotional breakdowns this week so we know it is making him a little anxious.  His sweet friend Abbie skyped him and prayed for him  and another friend from Friday school dropped off dinner for us all.  Jonah was determined to make him laugh so in Jonah style he came out with his sisters princess dress on and it certainly did the trick.  Noah was laughing so hard he couldn't breathe :)  We took him to the store to pick out ice cream.  He remembered us doing that for Jonah and so even though his throat wasn't gonna be sore he surely deserved some ice cream.  So Thankful for the many talks  we have had about God's goodness in the midst of trials.  As hard as it is to see my sweet boy go through this it is such a blessing to see him recognize God at work.  So now we wait and we put our trust in the Lord knowing he has Noah in the palm of his hand. Would you please Pray for good rest tonight and good results tomorrow.
