In the OR

Kerry has been back in the OR since about 8:55.  They were a little slow in giving the "happy juice" for my taste but all of us were more than impressed with her strength.  Let me rephrase that.  She was strong but not in her own strength.  We were thankful that the Lord was holding her.  She was ready. She knows who holds her. She has that peace that is incomprehensible.

The first thing they did was write a big YES below her left ear to make sure they operate on the right (or as we joked, the correct side, lest we confuse them) side.

We expect updates every hour and to meet with the doctors twice during the surgery.  We know that many are praying.  Our prayer requests are the same:
-protection in surgery
-no blood clots/other complications
-skill for doctors and staff
-peace for lily and jade this day

The physical presence of Christ in and through His people is one way he demonstrates his love and care for us.  Thank you for praying and for remembering Kerry today.  

Jerry (for Kerry, for now)
