Going Home Earlier Than Expected

The doctors just made rounds, and we are going home tomorrow. David is doing great and they see no reason for us to stay any longer. We were expected to stay for at least a week after surgery due to various reasons including a sluggish colon due to the previous colon surgery. In God’s mercy, David has had no set backs or delays. Abi and I were talking this morning about the goodness of God in bringing us through the past three and a half months. You all have been a big part of that goodness. We have received cards, money, leave days, meals, gift cards, visits, phone calls, prayers, compassionate nurses and doctors (some of whom we have established on-going friendships), hugs, cries, and more encouragement and support than we could have ever expected. Thank you again for your love. We are excited about our son getting to meet the army of people who have loved and prayed for him without having the opportunity to meet him. His quarantine will be lifted as soon as his chest incision heals. At the end of all of this, we can say with more confidence, “The Lord is my shepherd, I have no unmet needs”


PS: Smiley Face says hello

    That’s great! He’s doing better than Chloe did after her heart surgery. I know you have a lot going on but I would love to hear from you. It’s an acknowledgement that you’ve gotten my messages.

    I have read every one of your updates. I have never posted a reply before, but have been praying for your entire family. Such good news of going home early due to Sunshine’s quick healing! I was just telling Morgan yesterday how Abbi’s posts always made me tear up. Both of you are incredible writers, whom God has really blessed. Praying for continued healing for David.
