Thank you for your prayers!

Thank you so much for praying for Christian. We just got home from the hospital.  Christian did well and everyone there was wonderful to him.  He is super out of it still from the anesthesia.  He walked in the house laid down on the couch and went back to sleep. The surgeon who repaired his ear is also a ear, nose and throat specialist.  He did a great job on his ear and also did a complete exam on his ears, nose, and throat while he was asleep.  That was nice because it  is impossible for doctors to do much when he is awake.  He is concerned about one of his eardrums so he is going to put him under again in a couple of months and check that again.  It looks might he might have some scarring although we don't know from what. He isn't one to poke anything in his ears. His ear looks really good where they did the stitches today.  He doesn't seem interested in it either which is great.  The put in stitches that will dissolve so they won't have to take them back out.  I am real happy about that.  They also put him on antibiotics to speed up the healing and Tylenol with codeine for any pain he might have.  I don't think he is much pain but it is nice if he needs it.  I am so tired from 9 hours at the hospital today after 3 hours there last night.  I really hope this makes sense. 
I just wanted to let everyone know how much we appreciated your prayers today.  It went a lot better than I thought I would and I know that was definitely a God thing!

Hey Bronwyn,

Just spending this morning catching up on blogs. So glad that Christian is okay... and the story about your grandparents made me all teary-eyed. So sweet! (And I loved the Russian study you did!)

Hope you're doing well!

Oh my gracious! I feel like a bad bloggie pal-I haven't been blog hoppinn too much-and I missed this. I am so happy that things went OK and they were able to repair the damage. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Very scary and I am so glad he is feeling better.

I haven't forgotten your high school request either. I am currently working on putting together some info to have on my handouts for the June seminar and will let you know when it goes on Scribd. Is there any specific areas you need help with? Or want more info on? or is a general "what do I do?" thing? Thanks!
Blessings-
Sheri
