A Big Day

We don't know what time Hudson's surgery is yet, however, we do know that Scott's surgery is at 7:20 am (a four hour surgery), and Hudson's should begin somewhere in the middle of his. Donny's mom is going over to be with Kim (Scott's wife) and will wait until she gets a call to say when she should go over to Children's Hospital, as the surgeries are at two different hospitals.

Donny's dad and Kristi's mom will be at Children's with Donny, Kristi and Bailey, and Ty & Rustin are at home with Kristi's sister Amber her husband John and their 2 kids.

Please pray for the entire family, as this is all a bit overwhelming. Here are a few things to pray for:

- A sense of peace that can only come from the Lord
- Hudson and Scott
- All the doctors involved
- Donny & Kristi, as they care for Hudson
- Kim, as she cares for Scott
- Ty & Rustin. Mommy, Daddy & Hudson going to the hospital for an uncertain amount of time is a bit reminiscent to 2 1/2 years ago when Kristi was in the hospital and all that took place surrounding that tough time.

It will be a big day. I will update this as much as possible.

Words fail me right now--in the midst of all the things going on in this sinful world God is showing His sovereignty and mercy: by the dependence of the Vankers on Him alone; by Scott's giving of himself. What a testimony to His goodness. You're all in our hearts and prayers.
