Thursday is the big day!!

I woke up this morning with a list of things to do.  They first being to call the school and let them know my little ones wouldn't be there, because they are sick and to cancel bus service for them.   I went on my email to find and update about my sweet little Feng.  When I opened the email I was not prepared at all for what it said!!!!  Now I am nervous, scared and not sure what to do.  I know there is nothing I can physically do, but I really need to keep busy, so I don't worry myself sick.  I have finally received the answer to why Clara's surgery had to be canceled.  There is no way I could have handled her in the PICU, being post open heart and Feng all the way in China, having her open heart at the same time.  I should have known something big was going to happen!!!! 

Here is what Little Flower had to say today:

Feng has been waiting and waiting for heart surgery, but two things have been holding us up. One is that her surgery is risky and complex, and the other is that it's also very expensive. Today we got good news on both fronts - a visiting US pediatric cardiac surgeon is willing to cooperate with Chinese surgeons to do her surgery AND we found a generous donor willing to cover the 80,000 yuan (US$12,700) cost. Her surgery is scheduled for the day after tomorrow. Please pray that she's strong and healthy enough for this complicated repair, and that the surgery and recovery go smoothly.
Here is what I am begging for form each of you:  Please say a prayer that she is healthy enough for the surgery, that the US cardiac surgeon be skillful, blessed and successful.  Please pray that Feng is well cared for, by skillful nurses.  Please pray she will have an uneventful, quick recovery, her pain will be controlled, she will know she is loved, even if her momma is on the other side of the world, and complete recovery.  Could you also say a short prayer for me that I will find peace while all this is going on, away from me. on the other side of the world. 
Her surgery is scheduled for Thursday morning in Beijing.
Thank you,

PS.  Pray that her paper work will be finished sooner rather than later!
