No surgery today

Today has been frustrating - to say the least. Nathan was on "hold" for tentative surgery and couldn't eat. He was starving and they wouldn't give us an answer when the surgery would be, if at all.

This time Papa Bear went and rattled some cages and finally by 11am they decided to wait until tomorrow. We immediately went downstairs and got some food for our hungry boy!

Randy stayed with him last night, and they both slept the entire night except for pain meds coming in, then they would fall right back to sleep! A good night.

Today he is agitated, frustrated, restless, irritated, (are there any I've missed?)and I am here by myself as Randy just headed home until tomorrow. Pray for Nathan and me today...........enough said.

Two days after the accident Randy and I were driving home and this song came on 105.3 - I told Randy that this is definitely our theme song for this definitive moment in our lives - can't wait for Nathan to hear it!

Katie B - sent me the words today - awesome - you didn't even know that we had "picked" this song.

Before the Morning by Josh Wilson

Do you wonder why you have to
Feel the things that hurt you?
If there's a God who loves you
Where is He now?

Or maybe there are things you can't see
And all those things are happening
To bring a better ending
Someday, somehow you'll see, you'll see

Would you dare, would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing?
'Cause the pain that you've been feeling
It can't compare to the joy that's coming

So hold on, you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
'Cause the pain that you've been feeling
It's just the dark before the morning

My friend, you know how this all ends
And you know where you're going
You just don't know how you'll get there
So say a prayer

And hold on
'Cause there's good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot
It might take a little time, but you'll see the bigger picture

Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory
Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory, memory, memory

Come on, you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
'Cause the pain that you've been feeling
It's just the hurt before the healing

Couldn't have said it better myself......................................

Thanks for the update! I've been wondering about surgery. Let us know, when you know, what time tomorrow. We are still praying! Love you all!

Awww it is such a God thing. The first time I heard that song was yesterday and I immediately thought of you guys. Hospitals can be frustrating and we just have to remember that God is right there with us. :)

Coolest song ever! And coolest progress ever! Sounds like Nathan (and his momma) are motivated to get the heck out of dodge! Are we still beach bound? I'll pack the coppertone...who is packing the weenies for the bar-b-que? S'mores anyone? Gotta keep dreaming of better days...it'll help get you through! Love ya lots! And thinking/praying daily for ya! Hang in there! :)Lona
