For our friends who have been following Deb’s medical condition over the past 14 months we’re happy to report that her recent gallbladder surgery went very well. In pre-op she was asked if there were any other piercings that needed to be taken care of before the procedure. At that I told the nurse that I had suggested to Deb a while back that she get a belly ring. My request didn’t go too far. The big news though is that she is regaining strength on the right side of her body and the pain seems to be subsiding. We are chalking this up simply to miraculous as there is nothing that we’ve done to initiate the change. So we’re praising God and are enormously grateful for the doctors that have personally walked with us during Debi’s medical journey.
Over my years in ministry I’ve interacted with a lot of doctors and medical staff. Every time I meet one of these physicians I’m always impressed with their ability and gifting. With Deb’s condition we have met a number of highly competent medical professionals including Dr. Erika Simpson of Houston Methodist, Dr. Kang of Cypress Fairbanks Hospital, and Dr. Miranda who performed Deb’s gallbladder surgery. Again and again I’ve noted the ability in these brilliant people and thanked God for their skill. (more…)
