Praise the Lord!

We have so many reasons to praise the Lord today. Suzie's surgery went better than we even could have hoped. She was an angel all day even though she didn't get to eat for a whole 13 hours! We waited for over five hours at the hospital and when she was finally taken in for surgery, the doctor came out 20 minutes later and said everything went really well. We thought he was joking because we couldn't imagine that they were done already! Because Suzie was so calm, they were able to do the surgery without having to give her any kind of anesthesia. She only received Tylenol. This helped the surgery and her recovery go very quickly. We were able to take her home two hours later and she has been sleeping soundly ever since. The doctor is confident that the surgery worked and we have a follow up appointment on Wednesday to see her progress. Thank you so much for your prayers. We are so thankful to the Lord.

Another praise is regarding our friends Justin and Victoria. Their baby, Moriah, had a critical heart surgery today that was so risky, they had to go all the way to Stanford to even find a doctor willing to do the operation. God is so faithful and allowed Moriah's heart to be healed today. You can read their encouraging story here.
