Grand-kids on Christmas Day. L to R: Katie, soon to be 14, Caleb, 9 months today, Brittany, soon to be 17, and Jackson, soon to be 10.
First of all, praise God that last night was probably the best night’s sleep in 2-3 weeks. And today I feel more “normal” than in quite some time. I have learned a little about managing the itch, since it won’t go away until after the Whipple surgery.
Yesterday we saw my beloved cardiologist, Dr. Jackson, and he cleared me for surgery, which is scheduled at Vanderbilt Jan. 15. I will go off the Plavix on Jan.6.
We had a wonderful Christmas with all the kids. The picture is of all 4 grandkids on Christmas Day. Today is Dave’s 36 birthday and they will all be here soon to celebrate.
I cannot thank you enough for all your prayers and concern. I will post again before than, but please keep the prayers going up until and through my surgery.
* Continued improvement in sleep and managing the itch.
* That our faith, trust and hope in our great God remains strong. He is teaching me so much, and I love the songs and worship in the night as I fall back asleep.
* That the surgery on Jan. 15 will go as God directs and that I will recover quickly.
God bless each of you.
