I dont want to....................

I don't have any cute pictures, or anything deep to write about.

All I can think of is surgery on Monday. We are the first surgery of the day, so we have to be there at 6:00am. Hopefully this will give us enough time to recover, and we really will get to go home same day as they are saying. Follow us on Twitter for the latest updates.

Alex is having his testes brought down, his right eye probed (blocked tear duct), and is being circumcised. The doctor is pretty sure he can feel one of the testes, but cant feel the other, and cant even see it on ultrasound. I'm worried this may mean actually cutting him open to find and bring it down. Which may mean staying in the hospital. He is being circumcised just for cleanliness issues, since he did have kidney reflux, and was at a higher risk for UTI, and other infections it seems like the best thing to do for his health. His right eye's tear duct is completely blocked, and I'm hoping the probe will take, and he wont wake up goopy, and red every single morning!

RTS kiddos have been known to have trouble under anesthesia, Alex hasnt had trouble in the past, so Im hoping we wont have trouble now.

I don't want this to set him back.

I don't want to leave him.

I don't want to think of him being cut on.

I don't want him to go under anesthesia.

I don't want to wait 4 hours.

I don't want to hurt for him while he recovers.

I don't want to worry.

I don't want to wonder.

I don't want to do this!!!!

I don't blame you, I would not want my child to go through all those procedures either. Praying that Alex will fly through it all. Praying for you to Mom, hope you sail through ok to. Alex will thank you for all of bravery later. (don't expect it through the teen years, it might take until the 20"s)

I don't want to be here while you and Alex are there.

I don't want you to have to see that precious boy in pain.

I don't want them to have complications. (They won't.)

I don't want you to worry.

I am thinking about you all the time. I know the worry before a surgery and I know how anxious you are. I can't wait for this to be behind us.

I'm so glad I got to see this before Alex's surgery on Monday. Your comments were such a support to me over the few days last week leading up to James' surgery (and after the cancellation of said surgery!!).

Although James' surgery didn't go ahead as planned, I know the way you are feeling because my daughter had many (way too many) surgeries over the first two years of her life to fix her "clicky hips".

I know how exhausted but at the same time pumped up you must be right now, and how hard it will be to enjoy anything or think about anything else until Monday afternoon, when they tell you he is OK.

The only advice I can think of is something I'm sure you already know, and that's to try to spend as much time as you can this weekend playing with your boys. They will distract you in a way nothing else can.

I'll be thinking of you on Monday.

I'm sure it is going to be a Really Tough Sh** day. I will be thinking and praying for you. Please let me know if I can do anything to help.

With you this anxious weekend, all Monday and through recovery.

Alex's life thus far is a pretty strong testament to some killer resiliency inside that little buggar. And inside you, too.

We're with you.

Praying that Monday goes well. Praying for peace and comfort. Praying for you to be able to relax a little this weekend. Praying.

It's been some time since I left a comment, but I've been keeping my eye on you, Alex. I would like to pray for you before your surgery so here goes: Father, I praise you because you are good. You are faithful to perform your word. I bring Alex before you today in the name of Jesus. I know that you always hear us when we pray in his name, but I write it here for a matter of record. Please keep the Pruitt family safe as they travel and throughout the coming week. Your angels surround them. Anoint every doctor and nurse and every instrument and tool used to help Alex before, during, and after surgery. Give the doctors your wisdom. I pray for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. Thank you for continuing to display your glory in Alex. I ask for your deep peace to guard this mom and dad and Alex's brothers. Thank you, Abba, Father. Again, in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

hang in there!! he will do fine! frankie has had problems with anesthesia 4 times.. once was when they gave him morphine and the other times were when he was really congested... he has had anesthesia many many times.. im guessing 12 or more times? just make sure he is 100 percent and he will do fine!! frankie had a testicle lowered at 11 months of age, it wasnt too bad!

take care, we will be praying for alex and family!

I have felt the same things so many times... its so hard... its not fair, and we just don't understand, but if your Alex is like my Luke... they are so strong... stronger than we can ever be! :) I will be praying for you guys... Luke is having his Botox procedure and starting his casts next week... I don't want to go through it, but I know God has a plan.... keep hanging on with me for our little guys... they are awesome! :)
P.S. You are one strong woman... there is NO way I could not open that envelope! Haha!

God bless you and your precious little Alex. Through your blog I feel like I know you and Alex. Know that you are in my prayers. I know that God will be with you and with those who will be caring for him. He is in God's loving and caring hands. I am praying for a miracle for Alex.

Love, Milkiah

We will all be praying for our favorite little Alex. You try to be calm .. we will take care of the prayer.

Now I"m all stressed for you, thinking about the pre-NPO stuff, trying to get the last drop of clear liquids into him all night, etc. I know you won't get much sleep. I hate those early mornings when you have to be there bright and early. I'm also gonna pray about concentrated sleep for you, since you will surely be up that night before ....

Is there a Ronald McD house nearby that you can use???
