The surgeon called...

And Lily's surgery date is set for March 6. I'm not sure about the exact time, but they did tell me that Lily's case would be the 2nd case of the day...which would have us checking in around 10am on Thursday, March 6. We will be in Dallas on Wednesday, March 5, for all the pre-op work (registration, labwork, chest x-ray, etc...and to see and meet the surgeon, Dr. Eric Mendeloff) The surgery will take place at Medical City Children's Hospital in Dallas.

It feels good to know that Lily's heart will be getting better soon, but im also scared to death about the whole procedure. I was very nervous when Dakota had tubes put in his ears (Dec. 2006) And this surgery will!! definitely more meticulous.

I know that "all things work together for good" so this is what is going to happen and God will take care. He will steady the Dr.'s hands, and hold my precious Lilyann in his hands...He is such a big God.

Continue to pray as we make arrangements for all that will be happening in the following weeks.

And once again, Thank you for all the prayers. We are so thankful for the circle of friends that are praying.



2 Timothy 1:7 declares, "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

Natty has taken on the fervent praying for Lily. She prayed tonight that Jesus would heal the "Big" hole in "Little" Lily's heart. She said, "Please take care of her, Jesus, and help her not to be scared."

We cease not to pour out hearts before the Lord on behalf of Lily.

Continue holding on to His Word.

The prayers of the Stamps 1st Baptist Church have been in gear for the past few weeks and now we have something more specific to pray for. Yes, we'll include the doctors and surgeons and ALL the caregivers too. We love you, Joy and Jed, and we trust that our BIG God will take care of your little girl.
Hugs and kisses,
