Update

Simeon is sleeping now, so I'm updating quick, then I need to try to get some sleep too.
He is in quite a bit of pain.  His surgery lasted over 5  hours. He was in the surgery room from 7am til we were able to see  him in recovery around 1:45pm.    The doctor was able to completely close the "nose layer" and he's very happy with the mouth layer.  The layer in the mouth, was closed almost completely and all the way back, I guess his palate was quite long and the doctor was happy with this that he was able to go all the way back.  (I have no idea what he's talking about either) It's hard to understand, he explained the palate as a double layer, almost hamburger like layered surgery. 

Right now, the goal is to keep him as comfortable as possible. (which means morphine) He is not eating much yet, pretty much forced sips.  This should change during the day Wednesday as he gets his appetite back. 

His face is quite swollen, he looks at the arm braces like "What the heck are these things?" as he's crying. 

We thank you for your prayers, keep them coming!

I'll try to update Wednesday sometime...(it's 3am right now) It's impossible to post while he's awake.

  5. Complete surrender is what Lent is about, well actually our whole lives are about surrendering to the Father. He keeps pushing you. It must mean that you are very loved. Stay strong and remember that even if he acts mad at you that he loves you.

  19. So glad to hear the surgery went well. I'm sorry that he has to go through this! I guess the upside is that he won't remember it. Wish the same could be said for Momma! :)

  25. I always promise to pray but sometimes forget to keep my promise--but yesterday I actually did remember Simeon and remembered to pray for him! :-) I continue to pray for him--I have a small inkling of what you're going through so my heart and prayers are with you both.
