First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who posted such encouraging notes to me. I was blessed as I read each one! When things slow down I will visit with you more. I am in the ICU waiting room and wanted to post a quick note to let you know that Nick’s surgery took 5 hours and 15 minutes, but he did great!
The doctor was able to remove the entire tumor as well as another tumor that had grown under his scalp just beyond the internal tumor. Whew! His head has stitches from one ear up over his head and down to the other again…. it just breaks my heart.
However, NICK IS AMAZING!!!
Only five hours after the surgery was complete, he had eaten an entire chicken and cheese quesidilla! We can’t believe it! He keeps slowly lifting his head and turning it from right to left to show us how strong he is! It is precious.
As we face the next few days, it is certainly a faith walk. We just don’t know what the future holds….but then again,
WHO DOES!?!?!? I have to keep reminding myself that today is all ANY of us are promised and that we must cherish each day and live it for God! Yes, I have cried…A LOT….today, but I know deep within my heart that God loves Nick and He loves me.
Oh, thank you for your prayers! Thank you so much!!
Please continue to pray for our little man!
I love this quote someone gave me on a little pillow – “Faith begins where reason ends.” Our ability to reason through this ended LONG AGO!!!
I’m so glad to see news posted. Wow, Nick sounds like one amazing young man! Truly is a faith walk -I cannot even imagine.
Still praying in Michigan,
I’m rejoicing with you Tammy, and still in prayer for Nick.
Believing God for a FULL recovery now.
Oh, that quote was so perfect!!
Give your strong man a hug for me!!!
“The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.”
— Psalms 126:3
I just read about your family and will pray for you. Thank God the surgery went well. What a strong son you must have.
Aloha Tammy..I will keep Nick in prayer, he seems like a very outgoing and positive young man. I know the Lord sees and hears the prayers of a mother’s heart. I once told our ladies that I just vision a Mom’s prayer going up tied to pink balloons with pink ribbons tied at the end of them, and the Lord looks and says to his angels…hurry and gather as many as them as you can it’s from a Mother..
Praise the Lord – that is huge that he is eating Tammy.
The friend I was telling you about is not eating yet. We are all a bit baffled and he is on pills to bring about hunger but he doesn’t seem to want to. It’s so sad – so as I pray for John I pray for Nick
