A Bit of Anxiety

Kathryn is not very settled tonight. She is having some anxiety about her mouth surgery in the morning. Her doctor has ordered a platelet transfusion for 7 am and her surgery is scheduled for 11am. The grafting will be done by the same surgeon who grafted two teeth in 2003 before we knew about HPS. We have been reminding Kathryn that this surgery will be different than the last because we know what to do to help her body heal. She experienced prolonged bleeding and slow healing with the last grafting. In spite of our reassurance she is anxious. This is another test of faith so I'm asking God to give her peace tonight while she sleeps. The goal is to preserve this smile.
