Surgery is over

Well, thanks to God, and the prayers of y'all. Surgery went well. Victoria is back in her room and sleeping as peacefully as you can with tubes down your throat , and nose and 3 IV's in. They found that the shunt was clogged and were able to replace it. They now have to test and see if it was infected with bacteria or if the fluid in her head is infected, which will be a few days. One hurdle past, and now on to the next.  If you could pray : that they could find out why her white cell count is so out of wack (laymens termanology for where the infection is) and that she could get off of the breathing machine and breath on her own and that she could eat again on her own. Pray too for Linda, that she could get the rest she needs, as she will be staying at the hospital with Victoria.  We are thankful for a God that goes down the road before us and with us. Our lives are certainly not what we would have scripted for ourselves, but our great God never makes a mistake. He formed Victoria in the womb as He saw fit, and we just want to take care of our treasures that were given to us.  Is it easy...not, but is God good? yup. Well, its been a roller coaster of a day...my tank is almost on empty and so is Linda's, so I am off to put her to bed and then head there myself. Resting in the arms of Jesus, cause we have no other recourse...blessings, Bruce


  1. Thank you God!! We are so grateful that, as tired as you are you chose to post. We've been wondering all evening how things were going. Ben phoned while she was still in surgery, which we appreciated.
    You're in our prayers always. Wish there was some way we could help beyond that.

  3. So glad to hear that the surgery went well...still praying about the infection, and that God would continue to sustain you all!!
