Prayer Request Update

As expected, Abby came through her surgery just fine. They found that the cyst was about the size of a pingpong ball, though it didn’t bounce quite as well (just kidding, of course - I’m sure they didn’t try bouncing it). She was in recovery for a couple of hours and was doing so well (no vomiting, no lingering effects from the anesthetic) they said we may as well just bring her home. That was an unexpected but pleasant surprise since we had been told she would have to stay overnight. Of course on the drive home she vomited in the car, but we won’t complain. She is a little sore in her throat from the breathing tube and on her bum from the stitches, but seems headed for a quick and complete recovery.

So thanks to all those who took the time to pray for my little girl. God is good!
