I talked Nathan into a picture because all of you loyal friends and family need to see my handsome man/child.................................Tomorrow around 12pm Nathan will head in for the last surgery. Can you believe it? This surgery is to fix his patella (knee cap), it is broken into 5 pieces.
Today went actually quite smoothly and Nathan got over some hurdles. We had a very quiet day with no visitors - the quiet was good but I think we were both going a little stir crazy by 5 - and I don't get any meds!! :-)
Randy will be down tomorrow morning before Nathan heads into surgery. Everytime he leaves me - I am so painfully reminded of how much I need him for strength right now - without him, I am lost!
There is no way to express how loved and cared for we feel. We are counting the days to come home and praying for wisdom in our decisions.
Romans 5:1-5: Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
Leanne N. sent me these verses and added that even tho' the verses are speaking about spiritual sufferings, often times when we are physically suffering Satan attacks and tries to draw us from the one we need to hold on most!
