Surgery??? in less than 2 weeks???

I know posts about giveaways have been lacking recently! But.... yesterday, we took J for his doctor appointments and we got a date with surgery! J has an ileostomy that was placed during chemotherapy over 3 years ago and now that he is done with treatment, we can finally get it reversed.

So, June 1st, J will be admitted to the hospital for tests to make sure everything's clear and then, he'll have surgery on the 2nd. I think this is way faster than I really was thinking!

For the next 2 weeks, there won't be many giveaways posted here, since we have tons of stuff to do to get ready.... oh, we're also going to using cloth diapers during his hospital stay. So any ideas of things we might need to get would be greatly appreciated... or any tips, too!

We'd also love for y'all to pray that the surgery will be successful as there is always a chance (especially with J's GI history) that it won't work.

I pray for J to have a quick and successful surgery and a very fast recovery. As for the Cloth diapers I guess whatever is your favorite diaper now. I would also suggest a large wet bag or even better the hanging wet bag. And of course some liners to make the clean up that mush easier. *HUGS*

Praying that J's surgery is smooth and successful.

I'm wishing J well, along with you and that things will go smoothly! Will definitely pray. Is that J in the picture? What a cutie with his dog!
