Jolea's Big Day

Tomorrow is Jolea's big day!  She will have her bone graft done on her jaw.  They will be taking bone from her hip and packing it into the jaw where she is missing bone.  Right now the cleft has left an area about an inch wide where there is no bone.  A couple of her front teeth are actually not even anchored. 

She is extremely excited.  This surgery will close all the holes in her mouth!  Please keep her in your prayers!  Pray there is little pain, and also that the bone will grow and we will not have to do this surgery again. 

She will be on a liquid diet for at least 10 days, so if you have recipes or ideas for meals that she can drink from a cup I would love to hear them!  You can leave them in the comments or email me. :)

How wonderful, exciting, scary and amazing for all of you! Prayers for her and you, mama.

Lots of smoothies, is what I'm thinking for her liquid diet.

I will most definitely keep her in my prayers. I am visiting from Tessa's blog hop. I just read too, Joey's story. My heart truly aches for you. I am in tears. I cannot imagine the immense heartache you felt learning his diagnosis, then after treating and beating cancer have it return. Our God is awesome though and I know Joey is happy in Heaven. Hopefully he met my son at the gate and showed him all the great places to play, best ponies to ride and slides to slide down. Thank you for sharing your story.
