I really can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for the prayers, care and well wishes we received. We are blessed beyond measure.
Evan had complete relief of the severe pain in his leg on waking from surgery. The numb areas will take time to improve, but the horrible pain is gone. We are infinitely grateful.
As for myself, I am in awe of the power of prayer. While some might pass the miracle of Evan's pain relief off as the skill of the surgeon (and that certainly plays no small part), my own relief from fear and worry can have no other explanation than God's hand. And, it was the prayers of others that brought that peace for me. I could. not. even. ask. it for myself. At one point last week, the fear was so strong it almost took my breath.
Twenty-five years in the operating room has left me with a few haunting memories of "routine" procedures that should have gone perfectly well... but, they didn't. They were few and far between... but, my memory has always been good... And, my grief for those patients has never waned. Sometimes, life just isn't fair.
However, the day of Evan's surgery... I was at perfect peace. Thank you to all who prayed. For both of us.
I'll leave you with this quote for today...
And, gratitude beyond expression...
