Today has been very windy here. The wind caught an external door, and the door caught Noah’s head, and left him with a nasty gash. He has been to Alder Hey (Liverpool’s children’s hospital) and his head has been cleaned and well-bandaged. But he needs to go back to the Plastics Department at 7:30am GMT tomorrow [ignore the time-stamp on this post, which is set to Blogger’s default California time] to have his head stitched. He was quite frightened today, and the hospital staff have told us that they may need to put him under, as he might be too distressed by a local anaesthetic approach.
If you are someone who prays, please would you pray for Noah (aged 8)? In particular, please pray that he would have the peace to cope and that it will not be necessary to use general anaesthetic tomorrow; and that the rest of our family would know peace too. Thank you.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6, 7)
