Mid-Surgery Update

Mr Boy is still in surgery but things are going very well. Up to this point, we are more than halfway through the surgery. We still do not know how much longer but have been told "a while." The nurse who comes and tells us updates has said that she has been a nurse a long time and can tell the mood in a surgical room.  She said that when she goes into Mr Boy's surgical room to check on the status, she can tell it is calm and peaceful.  From the moment we woke up this morning till now, we have felt an overwhelming peace.  In our weary moments we have been able to rest in the fact that so many are praying. We can relax and have actual joy and laughter. It is overwhelming, humbling and outright crazy to think of all the people we know, and all the people we have never even met, who are praying hard for our son. We have to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for lifting us up in prayer all day. And I mean ALL DAY. The "Point is to Serve Church," our home church here in Sioux Falls, SD AND the church I grew up in, "University Blvd Church of the Nazarene" in Jacksonville, FL, both had prayer vigils which started the minute we arrived at the hospital this morning and will continue till 11 and 12 tonight. We feel so unworthy to receive this great outpouring of love and support, but gratefully absorb the blessings. The Lord is in the room with Mr Boy and guiding the surgeons and will be with us and Mr Boy every step of the way. We just want to rejoice in His power and strength, His mercy and love. Glory and Honor to HIM!
