Rocky who?

“Prayer is a moment of incarnation - God with us. God involved in the details of my life.” 

“We have an allergic reaction to dependency, but this is the state of the heart most necessary for a praying life. A needy heart is a praying heart. Dependency is the heartbeat of prayer."
              Paul Miller, A Praying Life

Tangible answers to prayer today:
-tumor removal, even from the major artery
-no complications in/from surgery
-she woke up without incident
-minimal hair loss
-pain seems managed at the moment
-our beloved "Kerry" is coming through already - with a hint of heavy narcotics
-the presence of Christ in His people
-medical professionals in general

More prayer needed:
-CT scan at 1am
-comfort and sleep with a huge n-shaped incision on the back of her head (and more staples than I have been able to count so far)
-continued healing and restoration
-continued management of pain
-no bleeding, especially along the wall of the oft-mentioned artery
-a better appetite tomorrow
-non-cancerous tumor - official results in a week (appeared benign as expected)

Everyone up here got a laugh today when I typed soldered instead of cauterized. Y'all knew what I meant, right?

For the second time this year, someone went (aka sawed) through my wife's skull, operated on her brain, and she has lived to tell about it.  She may not feel all that great and there is still a lot to pray about but I'm pretty impressed with this girl sleeping in the bed next to me.  Rocky ain't got nothin' on this girl!
