Not pregnancy related but prayers needed

This has nothing to do with my new bundle of joy, it has to do with my DS. He is having surgery on Thursday to have tubes put in. Normally this would be a simple routine in and out procedure. However, my DS has a rare condition called mastocytosis. Which causes allergic type reactions to random things, his mast cells over react and go nuts and cause reactions ranging from rashes/gastro issues/breathing issues/anaphalaxis.
So because of his condition and the fact that he can have a reaction to the anestesia this is a high risk procedure, they are doing it in the main hospital and not in outpatient. He has to be in the main OR not the side wing ones. Basically the dr said they do this so if there is a reaction they don't want to waste time transporting him to the main hospital they will already be there.
The dr has done procedures on masto patients before and he said that some do perfect, no different than a normal kid and some require an overnight stay so we are planning on spending the night and praying we won't have to.
So i'd appreciate any and all prayers and positive thoughts for Thursday! I'm already a nervous wreck and I know i'll be even worse when it comes time for them to take him from me. :'(
