Prayers Please

Daisy always seems to know when Brodie needs hugs and today is really one of those days. Brodie will be having knee surgery today. While this is a very common surgery that he has had before (15 years ago on the other knee), he has not had any surgery since his PTSD diagnosis. Panic attacks are very unpredictable and have proven to be a challenge during this process.


One benefit of living like a gypsy is planning your travel around world class medical care facilities. We are so fortunate to be staying 4 miles from Andrews Institute. 

The doctors and the facilities are top notch. However, the surgeon’s bedside manner is pretty bad. Fortunately, Brodie will be snoozing the next time they’re both in the same room. It’s alright. We don’t need a friend, we just need him to be a good surgeon (I’m saying this to remind myself).

We could really use some prayers today:

-Brodie has had anesthesia challenges in the past. We don’t need this today!

-For some reason, the testing/procedure rooms cause panic attacks and flashbacks. We need those to stay away!

-He won’t be able to eat until around 4:30 today. We don’t need hangry Brodie to cause panic attacks.

If you have a minute, please pray for us today. I will keep everyone posted.

-Jodi

    • Thanks, Jen! Surgery went well and it appears that panic attacks and flash backs were avoided. Now, to fit him into an RV with crutches and a giant leg brace 😳
