And, we're off...

Good Morning!

I hope that the sun is flooding your homes this morning, just as it is flooding mine! What a beautiful reminder that the Lord will flood our lives, if we only allow Him to.

I appreciate each of you so much. Your comments and thoughts to me are what keep me encouraged and strong. In fact, I'll have to tell you that as I was sitting in the pre-op area yesterday, one of the last things I did before going into surgery was read my blog comments. You are precious to me.

I won't bore you with all of the details about this surgery, but I'll just say that, though it was long and intricately involved, it went very well. I have a beautiful result, and I'm feeling that recovery is just around the corner.

I usually wake up and become alert very quickly after surgery, but I had a much more difficult time yesterday. I'm not sure if they moved me to the second phase of recovery a bit prematurely, or what, but I felt like going home was the last thing that I needed to be doing. After overcoming what seemed to be the impossible feat of getting home, Brian gently ushered me into the bed where I spent the remainder of the night.

This morning, I'm feeling pretty sore, but not terrible. I got up and ventured downstairs where I made myself a smoothie. Brian would want you to know that he was completely willing to make it for me, but I was adamant that I "do it myself". I just wanted to test my abilities.

So, know that your prayers for a wonderful surgery and a beautiful cosmetic result have been answered. And, I truly believe that recovery will be quick. I do have 2 drains from this surgery, so they are slowing me down a bit, but I don't think that I'll have them for long.

I appreciate your continued intercessions for a complete return to health and wellness.

May you all be richly blessed!

Brian and Lindsey,
I want to first apologize for being behind on your blog, we've had a crazy week over here.
I do want to tell you that not having read your blog, I awoke at 12:30 and had you on my mind. I knew that God was wanting me to pray for you. I prayed for you a quick surgery date to you guys needs being met like manna from heaven daily.
What did I read this morning, that God had already provided.
We are now prying for a speedy recovery and healing from the inside out.
We love you guys!
Stormin' His Throne on your behalf!

Am happy to see your post today!

Glad things went well and remember don't overdo it too much - your family is there to help you.

Since I am not a blogger myself....I always send my notes to you anonymously but I want you to know I am the same lady who sends you comments from Iowa and I am a faithful reader of your blog the last two years.

Your courage and faith are so amazing and inspiring.

Take it easy and I pray your recovery is speedy.

God Bless....Kim

Reading the first few lines of this post makes it hard to believe you are just a day out of surgery. You are such a blessing. I am praying that the Lord's hand stays on you.
