Thank you to all of you who prayed for Andrew and his surgery this week. We are so thankful for the ways God cared for Andrew and the rest of our family during this time.
Andrew had his surgery bright and early on Tuesday morning. While the doctors were working on him, they found he had not one, but two issues with his kidney/ureter. They were able to correct both at the same time. The surgery was long (almost 5 hours!) but successful and we are so thankful that it seems Andrew is on the road to a complete recovery and full use of both kidneys. Please continue praying with us for this - we have a long road ahead of us of visits, ultrasounds, and one more small surgery (to remove a stint that was placed inside him during the surgery), but we know he is in great hands - both the doctors and most importantly our kind God!
The Lord has been so kind to us during this week. We had a lot of practical needs met by our local family and church family - caring for the other kids, rides to/from classes, and an abundance of meals. We definitely have felt all of your prayers as well. Andrew in particular had an abundance of peace through this process and we know that is God's kindness displayed and resulting from your prayers. Thank you!
Thank you for continuing to pray for us as we see his treatment through to completion. We appreciate all of you so very much!
