Surgery Tomorrow....Lord Willing!

If this post sounds somewhat repetitive that is because it is! I know many of you have been confused about the schedule and the surgery...but do not feel alone because we have been confused too! It took us until this afternoon to work out the clearance with anesthesia...but I think we've got all the communication from Dr. Lehane through to the doctors at TX Orthopedic and we are set to go.

Brad is scheduled for surgery tomorrow to fix the 3 broken areas of his tibia & fibula while also repairing his torn tendon. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Brinker who will be assisted by Dr. Marco (who has done all of Brad's previous surgeries). It will begin at 7:30am at Texas Orthopedic Hospital (7401 Main St., Houston) and will last 2-3 hours.

We are praying for a very successful surgery, with a quick recovery...no complications, and that Brad is soon able to be back on his feet working to regain strength in his leg! I know that God's hands will be on Brad & our family tomorrow and the following days as he recovers. Thank you in advance for all of your prayers for our family. We love you all.

We'll be praying tomorrow! I loved the pictures - how do moms of many kids get cute pics? I can't manage one with only two! The "intruder" story was so funny - I can totally see you ready to attack with scissors! hee hee

I'm excited for that leg to get fixed! We will definitely be praying that all goes well.

The intruder story is hilarious. I'm impressed you even went to check it out. I would of had the police there. Wouldn't that of been embarrassing?! :)

We love each of you.

Will be in prayer tomorrow morning! Thank you so much for keeping everyone posted. And the intruder story is still making me laugh - I'm really not sure what I would have done.

Dr. Lehane... is that Dr. Daniel Lehane, the oncologist? I started seeing him when I had melanoma 5 years ago. What a nice doctor he is.

We'll be praying for Brad's surgery and recovery.

Blessings, my young brother. It has been a long time since you guys first stepped onto Thai soil and I am sorry that we lost touch. I have just today learned from Kelly of your situation and hope we might be able to meet-up this weekend. If not, please know that the Hendersons are praying for you and yours during this difficult time.
