We had a sweet prayer time tonight at Crossroads Church, led by Steve Farish, our old pastor, and the elders. Old friends from our “young couples” Sunday School Class back in the mid-90’s came. We marveled as we asked each other where the kids were in college and remembered how they played together as toddlers and preschoolers. It is an incredible privilege to be covered by such prayer. I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love on our behalf and so thankful for the body of Christ.
Some specific prayer requests: For a smooth surgery for me with no complications or infections and for quick healing and liver regrowth. For Gay that she would accept my liver well, that there would be no clotting or scar tissue formed that would adversely effect the transplant, and for quick healing and regrowth. Also pray for nothing to postpone or cancel the surgery. If another emergency comes up we will be “bumped” to another day, which would be difficult emotionally on everyone and hard for us since Rick already has a flight home on Friday. Also pray for those in the waiting room. Gay and I figure we have the easy part on Tuesday since we’ll be asleep! But Roger, Rick, and the family and friends in the waiting room will have a long and stressful day.
We will head downtown tomorrow and spend the night at a hotel across the street from the hospital so we can head over there at 6 am. Thanks so much for all your prayers and help and love! ~Sonya
