Laser Treatments Resumed!

This Friday, November 11th, at 11 a.m., Judah will have a laser treatment on his face. He has gone a couple of months without a treatment, and I recently found out that the laser nurse, Judy, who we absolutely adore and who makes our visits as happy as possible, is no longer working at the clinic. I am very disappointed about this, but must choose to trust God even in these small details. He is Sovereign, and He is good.

Please pray that:
  • We will be able to have the entire front of his face and his one ear lasered. (This is more than I think Dr. Cohen is typically comfortable doing on the "little guys". But with the extensive nature of Judah's PWS, I'm hoping he'll make an exception).
  • This treatment will have a significant, positive impact on the darkening and swelling I feel is already occurring on Judah's face, particularly his right eye lid and the bridge of his nose.
  • The nurse replacing Judy will be as kid friendly and helpful as Judy was.
  • I will be able to skillfully and without much interference from Judah apply the numbing cream two hours prior to his treatment.
  • Judah will leave the numbing cream alone on his face until he has the treatment.
  • Judah would already sense the nearness and goodness of God through these "traumatic events", and that God would use them to draw Judah to Himself.
  • God would heal Judah completely.

Thanks for your prayers!
