Surgery

I'm having minor surgery next month. I've had a lump in my cheek since May 2009. I was going to get it removed last summer but I got pregnant. (That's actually what led to me taking a pregnancy test. I had to know if my suspicions were correct before having general anesthesia.) Once Colin was born I just kept putting it off but it's been painful lately. I saw the doctor yesterday and we have it on the calendar.... Oct.19th. That means I need to get my exclusively breastfed, almost 5 month old baby to take milk from a bottle or sippy cup. I left a message for his doctor to see how long I need to avoid nursing afterwards and what pain meds I can take. I also have to fast beforehand with NO WATER which is stressful as a nursing mom. I know he won't starve especially since he's going to be starting rice cereal soon. But I won't be able to comfort my baby. :o(
Just posting this to share with hopes to get prayer for my health and my baby's transition. (We don't think it's cancerous because it fluctuates in size and appears fluid filled, but the doc doesn't know what it is and we'll find out next month.)
Appreciate the prayers.
