Barrie's spirits are high. Dr says the hospital stay should be 1-3 days, likely 2. Dr says recovery should be 1-2 weeks.
What Barrie wants you to know:
Lookin’ forward to getting it finished
Not anxious or anything
Pray for God to guide the hands of the surgeon(s) and that he is in recovery 2 hours later (the length of the surgery)
Peek into meals...
Today I went shopping at Sprout's. Boy have I missed that store. I picked up LOTS of veggies, some fruits, a few meats, and two treats (crackers). For lunch I cooked up strip steak and asparagus. DELICIOUS. My dad enjoyed it. My mom did not. Her Alzheimer's has really done a number on her taste buds AND her personality. I also made fresh juice: celery, cucumber, cabbage, kale, carrots, lemon, broccoli, ginger. Dad was less impressed with this recipe but drank it because he knows he needs the nutrients. Dinner was light: sliced ham, sliced turkey, sliced salami, and sliced cheese.
Miraculous healing Solid wisdom and ability for doctors Safe surgery Speedy and complete recovery Right perspective Determination to THRIVE
Pray also for Debbie as this journey will be hard for her to navigate in her current state.
Pray that the boys and I can be good servants and support as well as gentle yet firm warriors.
