Tomorrow is tonsillectomy day

by Megan Watts » Wed Jun 08, 2011 4:02 pm

If you don't mind, we can use all the prayers we can get. Seriously, I know it's *just a tonsillectomy* but he's 3, and Autistic, so nothing is ever easy for us! Thankfully I'll have my Ipad and will at least have it for some distraction!

In case you might find some support in them, Megan, here are a couple of prayers for a sick child from the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer:

For a Sick Child

Heavenly Father, watch with us over your child N., and grant
that he may be restored to that perfect health which it is
yours alone to give; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

or this

Lord Jesus Christ, Good Shepherd of the sheep, you gather
the lambs in your arms and carry them in your bosom: We
commend to your loving care this child N. Relieve his pain,
guard him from all danger, restore to him your gifts of
gladness and strength, and raise him up to a life of service to
you. Hear us, we pray, for your dear Name's sake. Amen.

Glad your son is doing well and hopefully you all will be out tomorrow! However benign, it is still a very painful and scary operation for a 3 y/o. Wishing you all the best and you will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
