Requesting prayers

Jake's surgery is late Friday morning.
He will stay overnight in the hospital in OKC and recuperate for at least 3 weeks.
The doctors say he will be in a lot of pain and confused about the new palate in his mouth.
Please pray that the attachment bonds we've made in the past four months will be enough to sustain him through this tough time.
It is so hard knowing our sweet, little boy who is sleeping like an angel right now will be in so much pain this time tomorrow and be clueless as to why.
This love God has blessed us with toward this little boy, whom we've only known by heart for less than a year and in the flesh for just more than four months, simply is amazing. We didn't know it was possible to love this much.

Good luck tomorrow guys and stay strong. You'll definitely be in our prayers. This is so great what you two are doing for him and I can't wait to see him back at work. I'll have his cookies waiting for him!

Thinking of you guys today. He knows you are there to comfort him, I've seen his faith in you grow so much.
Will be anxiously waiting for updates this weekend.
Kiss his sweet little tears for me and Cam!

Oh, I got this late. I've been off the blogs for about 2 days.

Hope all went well and that the recovery is smooth and not terribly painful. I'll be praying for him and waiting for updates.
