Praising God

Thank you for all your prayers for Dad's surgery. It went better than expected! The damage was minimal and the doctor was able to find out why the cyst came back after only 4 years (Dad's ear drum had folded in on itself, creating a pocket of fluid...or something like that!). He is home now and trying to take it easy.

I prayed for Dad the morning of his surgery 1) that the damage would be less than they expected, 2) that his hearing would be better than it was before, and 3) that they wouldn't have to do the radical procedure they had discussed. God answered all of these prayers. Dad says he feels like his hearing is better already, even though he has tons of packing in his ear! Praise the Lord!!

Caleb wasn't too sure who Dad was with that huge bandage on his head. He didn't want to have anything to do with him, but once the bandage was taken off, Caleb practically leapt into his arms. He was glad to have his Poppa back!

There are lots of restrictions on what Dad can do for the next 4 weeks (no bending at the waist, no lifting anything over 25 lbs, no driving for at least a week, etc.), but he'll be well taken care of here at home.

Nana will be coming home tomorrow from the hospital and will not be able to be left alone since she cannot get out of a chair by herself. Mom's not exactly sure how it will work out since she has to work 2 days a week, but we know God will provide a way.

Thank you again for praying for my family. God is so faithful to us.

This is such a cute picture! Your dad could really start a trend. :-)

I'm so, so thankful for those amazing answers to prayer! Isn't our God awesome, that He would even care to listen to us at all?!

I know my dad is never very good at "taking it easy," and I'm sure yours isn't either! (Good thing we don't have that problem. :-) I pray for continued healing and that all will progress smoothly, that this would be a time of refreshing and joy for your father even in the midst of his recovery.

It is so hard when our parents go through these difficult times -- esp with their health!! I pray a quick recovery for your dad. I am sure you will be a great support.
