Georgie had his tonsils and adenoids removed today – another event that was prayed for by many - Thanks Much – he felt them!!. Georgie was so peaceful, calm and brave that the nurses could not stop commenting on it. They said he was doing better then some adults. The surgery went real well and the time in the recovery room was good. He did not get sick on his stomach like some people do and he was able to down some pops soon after he arrived there. Now don’t get me wrong, he has a really, really bad sore throat, BUT he is quite impressed with how easy he can breathe out his nose. The doc said that his adenoids were so big that they blocked 85% of his nasal cavity!! No wonder he can breathe easier!! Now to get him through the next week…….
Times like these are a test of faith and a time of wondering……would I give thanks and praise if the diagnosis is sad news? Would I give thanks and praise if the surgery did not go well? I want to think that I would and I told myself that I would, but when it really comes down to it, would I? Thinking about it, I came to the obvious conclusion that it is MUCH easier to react in thanksgiving and praise in times of good news and reports. In times of suffering, sadness, or bad news it is ONLY possible in God’s strength and power and a MIGHTY strong faith in HIM.
Until next time………
