We're leaving in a packed van. Surgery update

Leaving for Soccer State championships tomorrow afternoon. My son's team plays at 8:00 tomorrow night and then 5:00 Saturday evening. Depending on how they finish in those two games will determine when they play on Sunday. I don't want to sound selfish but they have won State 4 years in a row and I would love to see a 5th. We are going to be up against some really tough teams though and not sure how it will play out. The boys are as prepared as they can be physically, I am hoping they are mentally as well. If you have a moment will you say a prayer for them. I cannot trick God by asking him to allow the best team to win he knows I want to win and I just come out and say it in my prayers. I do want Him to be glorified and I do pray that I will be gracious and humble to the parents of the opposing teams whether it is in victory or defeat. Several of the kids on this competitive team are also on the State olympic development team along with other kids that are on the opposing teams so we personally know several of the other kids and their parents plus one of the teams is from our hometown as well. We have been truly blessed by the soccer community with the friendships our son has made as well as the ones we have made with the parents. We have also been blessed with an outstanding coach. Not only is he a great coach he has character and expects it from the players. He has been a true role model for our son and the team. Only one thing left to say... "Go Rush Go!"

Have a great weekend.
On the surgery front. I have my pre-op appointment tomorrow before we leave and the surgery is scheduled for next Friday the 14th. Please pray that the pathologist will be able to read the tissue that day and that if it is cancer it will be removed fully and successfully.
