Transplant Day 2




4:30AM Yes, it's 4:30AM and Sawyer is playing with his new power ranger toys and watching TV!  He says he has no pain.  He wants to eat (he can't) 

Sawyer can not sit up all of the way and only has one arm available, but he's not letting that slow him down.

I'm exhausted, but so praising God right now. No way would I trade this moment for sleep.

3:40AM: Sawyer is doing unbelievably well.  He just woke up and requested to watch TV and open the presents we brought to him.  See him pictured above with his new Power Ranger Samurai sword. 

3:30AM: I was blessed to stay with Karen until she was ready to sleep again.

2:00AM: Went to check on my hero wife Karen. Karen is in great pain and nauseated.  I requested stronger doses of pain medication.  The nurse said "yes" and gave Karen nausea med too.  The nurse said she was using a medication stronger than morphine.  Try convinincing Karen. 


1:30AM: I am in awe of the turnaround in Sawyer's stats. His new kidney is working GREAT!!!! So grateful to get good news every time a test comes back.

Last night at this time I was so miserable I could not sleep. Tonight I am so elated I can not sleep.

Praise God for all that he's doing! Although my family and I don't know you personally we are apart of the homeschool community. We will continue to pray for complete healing!

Toby, though your words are so amazingly comforting to read, just the simple but happy look on little Sawyers face shows the love of God written all over it. Still praying for your family's recovery. What a miraculous new life for Sawyer.

YAY! So glad for the good reports. Praying Karen's feeling better today!

Praying you get some sleep!! :) If not - then accept God's supernatural strength and energy for today! He has it for you - just tell him you accept it! He's given it to me and to a couple of my kids over the years . . . totally supernatural - like we had slept 8 hours or more! :) Yay God!
Love you guys!! Continuing to pray for no pain and a quick and full recovery!!

Blessings!

Praise GOD! What wonderful news!

Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright. Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings ...

Psalm 33:1-3.

Praying for your pain to ease up, Karen! And, we are rejoicing that Sawyer is doing so well! Hopefully the pain med's have kicked in by now. It can only get better from here, right? (With God's help, anyway.) :D
