rick for sonya. Sonya rests in ICU. She smiled warmly when she saw me come in, and lightly squeezed my fingers. Then she commented on how much it hurt, especially to breath deeply. She squeezed her morphine drip and went back to sleep. She’s full of tubes yet beautiful as can be. As i sit here, watching her occasionally grimace in discomfort, I am reminded of much we need the God of healing and comfort to be her constant companion. Please pray towards that end. The next part of the journey will be no picnic.
They are presently attaching one of Gay’s three veins. She went in around 8am and they are saying it might be 6pm until they are finished. I believe there are 3 main tubes that need to be connected. Sonya’s surgery was simple: cut it out. Gay’s surgery is far more intricate: cut out the old and skillfully attach the new. When they release the clamps the goal is to see Sonya’s liver flush red with blood and life, and begin to pump bile. Long journey yet ahead for Gay. Pray for surgeons and her.
