Robbie actually heard these words from a doctor’s mouth today. He is scheduled to have another clean-out surgery in the morning (Friday), and they hope this might be the last one to require surgery. After that, the goal is to be able to tend to the wound in other ways. Please pray that this one will go smoothly, once again with no dead skin or signs of infection. Also, pray that Rob will come out of anesthesia easier than he has the last couple of times. That has not been fun.
I am still in town with the kids and will head to Memphis early in the morning. It has been good to be with them and be at home. We have talked to Rob several times over the phone, and our friend Stuart and my brother have been kind to go and be with him for the last couple of days. Robbie and I were even texting at 3:00 this morning. That was fun.
He told me that today he got back in the wheelchair for a spin, and is now off of oxygen and without a catheter. They are really moving him toward being fully able to come home.
I know I keep saying this over and over, but we are so amazed and humbled at what God is doing. As we were talking about it the other night, Robbie said that it is such a beautiful picture of the body of Christ coming together in prayer and love. Even people we don’t know who are brothers and sisters in Christ are lifting us up to the Father. It is precious to see.
Again, please pray for tomorrow’s clean-out. Pray for Robbie to have strength and for it to go better than any have yet. He is looking forward to blogging his thoughts in the near future. There is so much he wants to say to everyone.
Robbie, the kids and I want you all to know that Christ has touched us through you. You have been and continue to be His hands, feet, and heart as you minister to our needs. We do not deserve it and could never repay it, but we are eternally grateful for it.
