Surgery Over, At Last

We arrived at Admitting this morning at 5:30. Surgery was actually underway at 1:30 pm and everything in between was boring and tedious but God gave us the strength and forbearance to withstand the waiting. Some advice: do not book surgery the week after Spring Break. But I have had two visits with Gorman this evening in Recovery ( NICU was too full to move him there) and he’s doing fine. major problem is the catheter; as the male nurse says, “It’s a tube where a tube shouldn’t be”. Dr. Markert said the surgery went very well and now we have to wait for the pathology report, one week; another faith-building opportunity. Today I have held fast to the words from my “Streams In The Desert” devotional: “You should get into the habit of looking for the silver lining of storm clouds. And once you have found it, continue to focus on it rather than the dark gray of the center. Do not yield to discouragement no matter how severely distressed or surrounded by problems you may be”. I thank God that this surgery is over and I thank God for my dear Jackson friends who had lovely flowers waiting for me at the hotel this evening. I will keep you posted.

    Beverly, You and Gorman have walked this journey hand in hand with our Lord. He will continue to support you every day, as you look for the “good”, the “silver linings”. And your friends and family will continue to lift you up, praying for healing. I am encouraged that Dr. Markert felt the surgery went so well. One more hurdle jumped! Blessings!
