Surgery Over

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your prayers. We really feel God upholding us. We wouldn't be able to do this on our own.

The boys are both back from surgery. They are still "out". When they wake up they will get some morphine for pain. The surgery went well. It was faster than we expected. Over the next 24 -48 hours they will be recovering from surgery and after that we should start seeing some improvement. We pray that God will uphold them through this time. Benjamin has a minor pneumothorax (air in the lung cavity) but they expect this to heal on its own. They are doing chest x-rays right now and will do some blood gases to see how their numbers are.

I'm so glad that we got to hold the boys last night. Gary held Benjamin and I held Kyle for about 45 minutes. It was so special.

We'll try to update you a bit later.

Dear Greta and Gary: What an awesome God we serve, who despite our sinfulness and the results thereof, still gives doctors the knowledge to perform such intricate operations!!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow! He will not forsake the work of His Hands.
May you have a blessed Sunday.

We are so thankful for you guys that your little ones came through surgery and we will be continuing to pray as they continue to recover. Thank-you so much for keeping us all updated as you walk through these days with your boys. We check back often to see how you're all doing.
Love Brendon & Jodi and girls.

I'm glad to hear that both your boys are out of surgery. I will pray that they recover and gain strength after this surgery and that God will continue to uphold you as a family. I am so glad that there is a place for you to stay at the hospital with your boys.
