Surgery...take 2!

We are currently in the surgery waiting room again....We just got word that she went on the bypass machine at 12:25 this afternoon. They took her "away from me" at 11:15 and they anticipate a 2 1/2 hour surgery...much shorter than last time, that's all I know.

Kate had a good, peaceful night. Everyone just comments on how much better she looks today compared to yesterday before being reintubated...it was obvious she was struggling.

Andy and I didn't sleep much last night...even though we were in the hotel...man does your mind race laying there in bed at night. Andy is now trying to catch a few winks as we wait.

We are blessed to have Andy's parents with us again and Pastor Rex from church....plus our world wide web of comforters and prayers.

Will update soon...I know a bunch of you are "addicted" to Kate's progress...we are truly humbled by your sincerity and concern. We are blessed.

Love ya

Just chatted with another family from the PICU down here in surgery. They have a 10 month daughter with hydrocephalus....they have been in the PICU for 7 weeks now and are undergoing their 4th surgery in 7 weeks to reposition her shunt! God have mercy on us all!

Praying for you often today.... can't wait to hear the good news... that surgery is over and that the repair went GREAT!!!

I keep thinking of this passage from 2 Corinthians 1:

We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, FAR BEYOND OUR ABILITY TO ENDURE, so that we despaired even of life... BUT THIS HAPPENED THAT WE MIGHT NOT RELY ON OURSELVES BUT ON GOD, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he WILL deliver us. ON HIM WE HAVE SET OUR HOPE that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. THEN MANY WILL GIVE THANKS ON OUR BEHALF for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of MANY.

Love you much! Sending hugs!
