Fundo Monday

Eli is scheduled to go into surgery for his G-tube and fundoplication on Monday morning at 9:30. We don't have many details, except that they are going to attempt the surgery laproscopically. If Eli proves not able to handle the pressure from the CO2 they use to inflate the body, they will continue the surgery conventionally.

Please pray with us that:

  • Eli stays healthy through the weekend and is strong enough to endure the surgery
  • The doctors can assess Eli correctly in his readiness for the surgery
  • The surgery can be done laproscopically
  • Eli recovers and heals quickly
  • God's glory is fulfilled
A note about visitors:
While we would love your company during Eli's surgery, the hospital restrictions are going to keep you from coming into the hospital. Swine flu restrictions are still in place and only 2 primary care givers are allowed in the hospital, even for surgeries. We will do our best to keep everyone updated.

Romans 8:38-39 bring me hope:

"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor Swine Flu, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Though we may be prevented from being AT the hospital, we ARE present with you in prayer and love through the Spirit of God.

Remembering the words of Psalm 40:1-3, I only need to cry out; the rest is HIS to do for me. May you find peace in His hands throughout the day as you place your hope in Him.

This is a great idea. There is a lot of power in prayer, and something special about praying together, and in public. Is it ok to bring the kids?
