After the first hour of surgery, we hear upsetting news: that the surgery couldn't go exactly the way we had been hoping it would. But 3 hours of surgery later, the alternative outcome was looking possibly better than the first. We still got what we wanted, which was to eliminate the nightly procedure which caused Mr Boy fear and pain, and we think this was mostly accomplished. Mr Boy had a stitch coming out of his pelvic bone from the last surgery, which was meant to be permanent, but was inching it's way to the surface... which was causing his tissue to inflame and become irritated... which was partially blocking the main exit for his urine to drain out of his bladder... which was probably the cause of his intensely painful bladder spasms he was feeling every night this past week. Since his bones are healed, it was ok for them to remove the stitch and now we can allow the tissue to reduce in size.

Smiling after a little nap, a new little car, and a little morphine.
It was so hard to see Mr Boy in pain this past week with the intense bladder spams. We felt helpless and in the dark. But it's incredible to see the Lord use Mr Boy's suffering for good, to make his bladder more functional. The Lord knew what was happening even when we didn't and had a plan all along.
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called
according to his purpose.
Riding home this morning and SO excited about it!
