Prayers please...

Tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. we are scheduled to go have the first of four serial castings for Izzy. You may remember she had botox injections in her ankles a couple of weeks ago and it takes about two weeks for the maximum benefit of the botox. They will put the casts on her feet to stretch those muscles and each week tighten them up a little to get her feet into a better position for standing and using the walkable. Her left foot right now tends to be a little tight and it causes some difficulty. Shortly after Izzy's accident they did casting, she was still having neurostorms and flipped completely out. We had to have the casts cut off while her heart rate was pinging 250 bpm. I know that she is in a different position, but I just hope she tolerates it well.
So, some specific things I would like you to pray for:

  • For Izzy not to be in pain in the casts.
  • For Izzy to not be upset by the casts.
  • For the casts to do what is necessary to straighten her feet properly.
  • For my strength as she will be gaining several pounds from these casts.
Thank you in advance, as a complete believer in prayer I feel so much more peaceful knowing we will be covered in prayer.

Heavenly Father, I pray that even tonight that you will give Izzy comfort and peace. That you will prepare her as she sleeps to have the casts placed, and that you will give Annie the extra strength and courage that she will need over the weeks of casting.
Father we also thank you in advance for the healing that this casting can help to bring to Izzy's legs and feet. In your name!

Amen

Annie,

Know that Izzy will be in my prayers over the next week. I will pray that God grants her comfort and healing through this new procedure and that he will grant you peace and patience to make it through with her.

You are both in my thoughts and prayers!
