So, I will be having surgery tomorrow at 2:00 pm.  The doctor said that my cervix has shortened since the last ultrasound, but fortunately it has not dilated at all.  This is a precaution that will hopefully help keep this baby in for a few more months.  I was surprised to hear about this today, since I have been feeling fantastic during this pregnancy, especially compared to how I felt during my pregnancy with Asher.  But we are trusting the Lord.

The surgery is day surgery, so I will be home tomorrow evening as long as everything goes smoothly.  I was thankful to hear that it is spinal anesthesia, because the thought of general terrifies me!  I still need to fast after midnight tonight, in case general anesthesia becomes necessary.  Do they realize what kind of horrid task that is to ask a pregnant woman?  I hope I don’t forget while I’m feeding the boys breakfast tomorrow morning…

I would appreciate your prayers for everything to go well tomorrow!
