Hand surgery

They just took Nathan in for hand surgery - this one will be 2 hours.

They are having trouble managing his pain and keeping his heart rate down - pray for wisdom for the Doctors.

My BFF Judy flew in last night from Idaho to "babysit" me while Randy has to be home. I am so thankful for her family in "sending me the package" :-), and she is the "medicine" I need right now. She loves Nathan like her own and HE knows that!

When we were in by his head I said to Judy "we're going to have to give him a haircut" - no sooner did I say that and Nathan's eyes flew open and he shook his head "NO" and the only way to calm him down was to say - ok, we won't, it's ok!! :-) A little happy spot for a moment.

How much can a heart take? I guess I am learning.............................

His mercies are new every morning (sometimes every minute) - GREAT IS HIS FAITHFULNESS!!

Janice and family,
It was only today that I learned that it was your son, Nathan, who was in the accident. I am so sorry you are going through this. My prayers are with you, Nathan and his doctors. God is good.

I love that through all of this, he has an opinion on a haircut. It's the little things like this that bring a smile to our faces! Praying surgery goes well today. Uplifting you all in prayer! We love you guys!! Give our Nay-nay our love!

In February, Greg, had surgery. Nathan stayed by him the whole weekend - slept in the living room so Greg would have someone to keep him company. Although, we can't be there in person, we are standing by you, Nathan, in thought and prayer. Keep looking up, Janice! May God's presence fill that hospital room! Praying for all of you!!

Love - The Burgers

I'm so glad Judy made it to Seattle and you have someone to run to Starbuck with.
Do you need us to get you anything when we come down on Wednesday say some hair clippers or something. Just kidding Nathan!
See you late morning ish.
