Prayers for a Procedure

Tomorrow morning, (check in at 9:00, procedure at 9:30), Rachel will be having a special procedure done to rule out the possibility of a fistula (hole) in her palate.

The procedure is called a fistulagram and it involves her swishing contrast around in her mouth and then having a special Xray done to see if and where the contrast travels, thus ruling out or confirming a hole, depending on where it travels.

I'm starting to get a little nervous about how she's going to react to having to swish the contrast around in her mouth, I'm sure it tastes nasty.

Would you please be praying that 1) Rachel cooperates with taking the contrast and swishing about and that 2) the results would be negative for a fistula (no hole). Prayers would be very much appreciated! Thank You!!!

When we get the results, I'll be sure to share them.

I know she's a big girl now, which is what kinda has me worried. LOL. She can refuse and put up a fight if the stuff is nasty.

Will be praying that it doesn't taste gross & that she willingly swishes to get in & out of there as quick as possible! :)

I'll be praying for you guys! Hope all goes well. (I've been so busy lately that I haven't checked blogs in several months! Glad that I check in on yours today and saw this.) I will pray that everything goes smoothly and You are out of there quickly.
