A quick update

I won’t write a ton tonight but I wanted to send out a quick update for those following. We met with the nuero surgeon this afternoon and we immediately felt so much peace and comfort. This is where we are supposed to be. I was admitted tonight for pre op and have spent the afternoon getting more needles and tests done than I ever have. And my fourth MRI in the past couple of weeks. But today while I was laying there trying not to think about being stuck in a tiny machine full of loud noises, I thought of all the people who asked me to pray for them and I prayed for them! It helped me so much so thank you to everyone who has reached out to me! I am still getting through messages (we have received about 200 in the past 24 hours). I am trying to respond to as many as I can but it is just taking time. I love hearing from everyone though. The support is incredible.

A few quick facts for tomorrow: I won’t have to wear a halo OR be awake (can I get an Amen?!) The procedure will be about 6 hours long and will start sometime around 10 am central, but that could change. There is still a lot of risk involved but we are praying this gives me a better chance at beating it! Thank you for all of the prayers that have led us here and we ask that you please pray for our surgeon tomorrow, that his hands may guide him to be as successful as possible!

  3. Praying for you right now while you are in surgery. Just heard that you were headed into surgery a little after noon, so my prayers are definitely for God to guide the wisdom and hands of your surgeon. God gives all His power to those He annoints to do his work. I do believe in miracles, especially those that God initiates, but I also believe in the power of knowledge, and wisdom, and hope. Please God, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, combine all yours powers right now in that surgical operation, and declare Stephanie healed! Thy Will be done…..Amen.
