Update on my student...

I finally got to talk to my student's mom today and she said to tell you all, "Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers!" They have definitely felt them and even though mom and dad were nervous and worried, they knew that God was in control and that everything would be fine. He came through the 4 1/2 - 5 hour surgery great! He's been in a lot of pain, but now that the morphine pump is working he's feeling much better and has been sleeping all morning. They started him on clear liquids yesterday and will be having them today and then they might start him on a soft diet tomorrow. He must be eating an almost normal diet before he leaves the hospital so they're anticipating him being there a week before he can go home. As far as I know he does not have Crohn's and will not have to have a bag. I didn't ask any details, but since the surgery went smoothly he didn't have to have a bag. His mom is just amazed at how well he is doing and knows that it's because of all of the prayers....even from people they don't know. God is so amazing!!
