In October of 2011, Natalie was taking the lid off a pan and scalded her hand. She ran it under cold water. It was Max who came to the rescue with natural solutions, which took the pain and redness away almost immediately. While she lay down and rested, Max drew her this picture:
We found a scan of this drawing yesterday. Notice how the living/green side is overtaking the scalded side of the hand. We are so humbled by Max’s wise and caring nature.
Today has been a day of many joys and sorrows. The doctors are confident that the dead skin must be removed and replaced with skin grafts from Max’s other good skin. As a mother, my heart cries out for the perfection to come back to the perfect little boy I bore into this world.
I plead with Heaven to heal the skin on his hands, his neck, and torso. But if not, we will believe still. He will heal still. Oh have mercy, and send us healing and peace.
Max goes in surgery tomorrow at 10 am. We ask for your faith that his surgeon, Dr. Lewis, will be guided.
Thank you in advance. We feel your prayers and your love.
