Today is the rest of the hip/pelvis reconstruction - another BIG one. BUT - possibly the last one - for a while!
Today the going gets tougher and the tougher get praying.............
His nurse yesterday told me that today - he will not like her - he will be mad - and he WILL be in pain! She has to bring him out of his fog enough to start breathing on his own so they can get the tubes out. I'm so ready for the tubes to be out - I want to talk to my boy - and you know Nathan - I'm sure he's ready to talk - ask questions.
I can't bear the thought of him in pain - YES - I know there's plenty ahead - but I've never been one to fix boo boo's on our kids because I am a weak link. When I can't fix their pain - I crumble.
-Nathan's stamina going into a 4th surgery
-no complications and Dr.'s wisdom in surgery
-no complications with getting the tubes out and that he will breathe well
-that God will give Nathan grace and strength to endure what he has to today (and obviously in the days to come)
-for Randy as he is feeling displaced and can't be here
-for Brandon and Em, I know surgery days are harder for them too
-for this mommy,sitting here crying - strength that I've never had to be there for Nathan today
Here's the bike - cousin Darren sent me a pic.......................
Our "neighbors" down here saw this pic and they know bikes, and she said usually after a bike after a wreck doesn't even remotely look like a bike. They usually it's a wheel here, a seat there, and they never even can find all the pieces! So again - A MIRACLE.
Sorry for the long posts - it's therapeutic for me (you know I'm a woman and I have to get all my words in for the day!). I just want to share one more thing. Katie B. sent me a verse and I love it......................
1 Corinthians 12:10 "That's why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
