Day 10 after surgery.........Physically tough but some mental relief!!!

Just a little update as to how day 10 has gone. Debbie continues to have lots of pain and just don't seem to be able to get comfortable enough to get a good nights rest. I don't want to sound like I am complaining, I just want to give you the best update I can. We sure are grateful for how far the Lord has brought us and we know His continued grace will be with us.

We did receive some good news today from my Dr. friend who read the Pathology report and seems to think that no further treatment will be necessary. This is great news, yet we still need to see what Dr. Netterville says next Friday. We are trusting in the Lord and know He knows what we need. I am thankful He gives wisdom and knowledge to men and women that can aid in our physical needs. He is so good to us.

On another note, I have not taken the time to thank everyone for all of the nice things you have done for us during the loss of my mother-in-law and my wife's illness. So many have called, given us gifts, cooked food, sent cards and flowers, taken care of our children, taken care of our store business, helped me work around the house and offered to do anything we need done. Everything has been so timely and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your graciousness to our family. We are so blessed to know so many good people. Sorry I am a long blogger but I have so much to say I can't find a good stopping point. More tomorrow.

Wendell & Debbie,
You all are doing the best you can and I know in time Debbie's pain will hopefully subside. It is going to take time. Don't push it. Debbie-Take your pain medicine and sleep. Your body has been through alot. Surgery in itself can exhaust you after being put to sleep. Just rest!!
Love you guys,
