We are praising God tremendously today! Sami has had a great outcome for her surgery and subsequent pain management (which was a big problem for her last time).
Dr. Bolognese came out of surgery with a huge smile on his face. He said that her surgery went very well, the cord jumped up quite a ways, and that it was sure to give her much improvement. He also said her dura was unusually thick which should help her have a really good recovery! She was initially in a lot of pain in the recovery room and as soon as they started her pain pump she was able to rest. This never happened for her last time and this is a HUGE answer to prayer. She is still being able to rest for 15 to 20 minutes at a time. Such asnwers to prayers. Thank you everyone for praying!
I could write a book about today if Sami’s monitor’s would stop going off! We started the day with time in prayer and asked God what verse He wanted on our heart as we left for the hospital. He had us turn to a verse in Mark. It just so happened to be one that has Sami’s favortite quotes with an extra message added for her. Mark 14:36 And He said, Abba, Father, All things are possible for You. Take this cup away from me; never the less, not what I will, but what you will.” Wonderful words from God and this is exactly what happened today. Sami couldn’t get out of her surgery but things went beautifully by God’s plan. We praise God for his Glory.
