So grateful beyond words for all the texts, cards, flowers,gifts, meals, visitors etc. over the last few weeks. This has been a really rough recovery. We did not expect things to go this way and are nervous heading into the next planned surgery. Yesterday we were advised by my surgeon to go to the ER to get checked for infection because I was developing flu like symptoms and not getting better. After spending seven hours in the ER they did not find anything. Their best guess is that its most likely a reaction from all of the heavy antibiotics I have been on from my last two surgeries. I had a rough morning today but by the afternoon I finally started to make a turn for the better. I even got out for a walk and enjoyed the fresh air and the warmth of the sun. Praise God!! We are hoping this continues. Please would you all pray that I would feel good enough to have this surgery on Tuesday. They will be implanting a defibrillator. It’s a much needed surgery and I’m ready to get this all behind me and on the other side of things. I Cannot even express to you how grateful I’am for an amazing church body who just enters in to the pain of others in the most beautiful of ways. It’s overwhelming how beautiful it is to be so cared for. Please forgive us for not responding to texts or messages right away and know that we want to, we care, and we are so thankful.
