This morning so far
We read Psalm 40 together, and have felt reasonably calm and peaceful. Derek was rolled away from pre-op around 7:30am. He will be sedated for the procedure to put markers in his back which will help the surgeon know where to make the incisions for the surgery. Inserting the markers will be first, and we will not see him in between that procedure and the actual surgery itself. The nurse did not know if he would wake up in between the two or not. We are in a very full waiting room. The sun is shining, and Jesus has His strong arms of love around Derek and us. Thankful for your prayers.
