Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Surgery Report

All is well - praise the Lord! My daughter's surgery was over in an hour and a half (the last one lasted six and a half hours) and by 11:00 this morning she was in a room. Last time she was asleep for 2 days; today she hasn't closed her eyes (or her mouth) yet! She hasn't even been drowsy! She has walked with a walker to the bathroom twice, ate a cheeseburger with no nausea, and swears she can already tell she has relief from the pain in her hips. Her incision is a little uncomfortable and is seeping just a little but otherwise it looks good. It's in the middle of her lower back, below her waist and not nearly as large as I thought it would be. I won't be surprised if she gets out of the hospital tomorrow - last time she was there about 4 days. I'll be bringing her home with me so her husband can work since they own their own business but I know we'll have a good time hanging out for a few days. God has answered our prayers is a wonderful way - thank you for petitioning Him with me.

That is great to hear. It's no fun being down anytime, let alone at holiday time.
My DIL had gall bladder surgery Monday. today I was called at 7 Am to be nurse maid. I got the 8 month old, 6 loads of clothes and the kitchen cleaned before noon.
Then I needed a nap with the baby!
I hate getting old.

So happy to hear that your daughter is doing well after surgery. Isn't our God an awesome God! My daughter should be released today after her four day stay for her pancreas problem. Now we will pray for speedy returns to full health.

Anaesthetics are so much better than they used to be. At one time you would be at least 2 days just throwing up! These days they want you on your feet next day. What a great Christmas she - and you -will have.

love, Angie, xx
