Prayers for Joe

Can I ask you all to say a few prayers for my gorgeous grandson Joe today, as he had a terrible fall out of a tree on Sunday and has broken his left arm very badly, hes already had two operations on it and is now due for yet another today. (Ive just had a text saying hes in the operation theatre as we speak).
Hes in so much pain and his mum (my daughter Sarah) is staying with him and she is worn out from lack of sleep and worry, she said hes in so much pain that he is finding it difficult to sleep, its such a shame as hes such a gorgeous lad, hes nearly 13 and not going to find it easy coping with his arm as hes such a active lad, a real boy.
Please God the operation goes well and he will be allowed home very soon, take care my loves, just wish I could be with you and your mum, its just that at the moment my dear hubby Ian is also due for a operation on Friday and is finding it difficult as he suffers with diverticulitus and is going through the hoop with it at the moment, and this is his first time experience for him. Hes due to have some skin removed from his neck and Im so hoping that its nothing nasty or he will find that he will need to return for yet more to be removed.
Its a very worrying time so please can you keep us in your prayers at this difficult time.
The latest news is that his muscles and tissue is so badly swollen they carnt close the wound, hes having to be transferred to Stoke Manderville on Friday for plastic surgery on Saturday so they can transfer some skin from his thigh onto it to close it, they will then send him back to Milton Keynes Hospital on Sunday. Poor little lad, his mum says hes sleeping at the moment dosed up on pain killers. I do so hope they can get him sorted soon.

Aw Shirley - what a time you're having - there's nothing worse than worrying about the health of a loved one. I'm sure Joe will be fine - he's a gorgeous strong boy - keeping him still will be the next problem I'll bet! Your poor husbands got you to look after him - now you just need someone to look after you- take care of yourself Shirley . I'm thinking about you and sending big hugs
