Over the First Hurdle...

Hey guys!

Heather went in to surgery at 8:00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m. Dr. Stokes came to the waiting room and announced that Heather came through just fine. He was able to get most of the tumor and confirmed it as benign.

She is on her way to ICU where she will spend the next day or two. She will not be cognizant or coherent today. We're expecting her to have a room by Wednesday or thursday and we would love for you to come by for a visit. I will update the blog with her room number.

Thank you all for your prayers and support. The worst, I believe, is past. Now begins the long and arduous road to recovery. However, God has been faithful throughout this process and will continue to be faithful. All praise and glory belong to Him!

Brad & Heather:

You two are a great encouragement .....your faithfulness in Him, your love for Him, and especially your trust in Him.

I praise God for bringing y'all thru the surgery. I will pray for the recovery process and that the Lord would use y'all to lead Dr. Stokes to Christ.

Much love
