Surgery #2 Update

Jude did well during surgery tonight.  Thank you for praying.  I don't understand yet what exactly happened in the operating room, so a more thorough update will have to come tomorrow after we get some questions answered.

It seems that things went well, but they found more than they expected when they went in.  The surgeon informed us that if this doesn't work, we will need to be transferred to a different hospital with more specialists.  In the end, the surgeon seemed less hopeful than we expected that this solved the problem.

We will know more tomorrow.

The lack of communication and the miscommunication between the hospitals has been hard for us.  Our baby's care is in so many ways being negatively affected by politics.  We are learning how to advocate better for our son.  We have much to learn.

In the meantime, please pray for God's will to be done in our lives.  Pray for wisdom as we navigate the medical world. Please pray that our trust in Him would grow still more.  And, please pray that people would see more clearly how beautiful Jesus is through the lives of our children.  Thank you so much.   

I lift up my eyes to the mountains
where does my help come from? 
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip -
he who watches over you will not slumber; 
indeed, he who watches over Israel 
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you— 
the LORD is your shade at your right hand; 
the sun will not harm you by day, 
nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life; 
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Psalm 121

Mandy so good to see you look up Ps 121. It's such a wonderful passage of scripture. God has got the whole plan and everything is in HIS time. Hang in there with the politics you will be able to learn as you go. Hope your health is getting better. Tell Calb Happy Birthday for me. Give Brandon a big hug for me as well. Love you guys so much. I have lots of people who are praying for Jude and all the Peltons. Don't give up!
