"Each knot tied represents a prayer that was said specifically for you. Notice that the yarn has been left long. This provides others such as friends, co-workers, and family the opportunity to pray for you and to tie a knot. We hope that this quilt will bring you comfort and peace."
There were 16 signatures on the instructions and I only recognize 1 of them, the other 15 were by her friends from church who I never met and most likely never will. It is so amazing that there are so many people praying for Owain, when I look at his quilt it warms my heart to know that there are more prayers for him than I will ever know. I feel so honored knowing that my son's Heart is in the hearts of so many.
Owain's next surgery is scheduled for Wednesday September 3rd, not sure what time yet though. It looks like it will be an early morning spot though. We wont know for sure until his pre-op appointment on the 2nd.
I realized yesterday while I was looking at my journal that you all have seen a picture of his Prayer Quilt, it is the one he is laying on in my last post. If you look close you can see that there is still room on many of the strings of yarn for more prayers.
I know that he has lots of love and prayers watching over him every day. I am going to be taking his Prayer Quilt to the hospital for his surgery. If you want your prayer to be a part of his Prayer Quilt, let me know and I will say your prayer for him while I tie the knot in his Quilt.
Well I am editing this post, because I just heard from UVA and I guess late last Friday Owain's cardiologist and his Dr that did the Cath procedure a few weeks ago got together and decided that he could wait to have his surgery. I feel like I should be more happy than I am now, but at the moment I am in the middle of an emotional roller coaster. I was getting ready, and now I don't have to, but I will have to get ready for it again next month, I just don't know when. I was already starting to get stressed about it this morning trying to get all of our plans with the kids & school and schedules and now I just don't know what to think.
