William’s condition, update 15

We have surgery scheduled for June 16. I am praying that William will have no side effects and that the doctors would be able to be completely effective in surgery and this next stage of his healing. As with anything, there is a chance of side effects when you enter surgery. All of which are all a very low percentage; but they’re still there. So, we pray.

All in all, it’ll be two surgeries in one morning for Will. Something called a Septoplasty, which will repair the shape of his nose, and help him breath better. More importantly, his scans showed how crooked the bone structure is so once corrected, it’ll help the doctors get to the leak from his brain. The next surgery is called Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, which is where the ENT & neurosurgeon will begin to repair the hole from his brain leaking through the nose. We were walked through the process, step-by-step, of how surgery will proceed and it is quite amazing!

His doctors are completely confident in the successfulness of surgery and his outcome. But as expected they still speak presenting both sides of positive outcomes and negative.

As for us this week, William is working his tail off to finish up loose ends with work. I am trying to get everything done in the house to be prepared again when coming home. In the mean time, as with anyone who has seen us lately will say, “you look exhausted!” That’s exactly how we feel. Please pray that William gets everything accomplished that needs to be and that we both have some sort of renewed strength and energy come Thursday. This reminds me again of our pastors sermon about pressing into Jesus. I mean, what else do you have left of yourself? For us, it’s not much. So, we cling to our confidence in God’s will for our lives, His love for us, and how we can serve Him through this season.

    I will be praying for Will and you. Rest when you can, you need that. I know that God will take care of you all. God will bring Will through these surgeries as He has brought him through his illness. I know I don’t have to tell you to keep the faith. You have that all ready. Love to your whole family.

    Praying with thankfulness for what the Lord has done and requests for what lies ahead. Yes, lean hard into Him. And be kind to one another. Stress and weariness can strain your relationship, right? Love and hugs!

    Wow does that mean Will is also getting a “nose job” out of all this??? COOL. LOL

    This IS God’s area of “expertise” – providing hope & grace to those in need and providing uncompromising love & mercy to those in difficult positions. A verse I have fallen back on MANY times. May it uplift you both.

    James 1: 2-4 (New Living Bible) “Brothers when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect & complete, needing nothing. ”

    Steve & Rita

    Prayers will continue.

    Hi J., W., and C.,
    We pray God will guide the hands of the surgeons and that His strength will be your strength. May all three of you rest in Him knowing He is sovereign over the circumstances of your lives and that He alone is trustworthy.
    “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom. 8:38-39 Love from Kansas, E. & J.
