Pray for Clarice

My youngest daughter Clarice was born with a bald spot on the top of her head.  Right after her birth, the pediatrician examined her and thought it was a cutis aplasia and said there wasn't anything to worry about. Fast forward to a few months ago when Clarice's bald spot began to grow a small bump on it.  I took her to the pediatrician who referred us to a pediatric dermatologist.  She diagnosed Clarice with a nevus sebaceous.  We then had to see a pediatric plastic surgeon.  He recommended removing the growth because it has a chance of becoming cancerous over the course of her lifetime.  So tomorrow is the day Clarice has her surgery.  Of course, I'm a little nervous for her.  I'll give everyone an update tomorrow night.

Susan my thoughts and wishes are with Clarice and you. My dearest hope is that the surgeon can safely remove this spot, and that everything is fine, forever.

Praying for you and the medical team, Susan. God's Will be done, the team be acutely aware and alert during the operation and recovery, and that peace will cover you and the family like a warm, fuzzy blanket.
