Resting and Recovering in Austin

Jenny before her surgery on Tuesday.

We arrived back in Austin yesterday afternoon.  Jenny is resting as much as she can and trying to stay on top of pain management.  The surgery, in case you haven’t heard, went as well as could be hoped.  They believe they were able to excise all of the tumor, and upon microscopic inspection of the two lymph nodes they removed there doesn’t appear to be any sign of spread or invasion… always our greatest fear.  We will find out for sure at our next appointment Wednesday.

We are relieved and tired, and can’t  offer our appreciation and gratitude to all who have hoped & prayed with us in a manner that would even begin to fairly convey what a treasure and life-line that love has been to us.  Please give thanks with us now for a successful surgery and the beginning of a recovery.

Almighty God and heavenly Father, we give you humble thanks because you have been graciously pleased to deliver from her cancer your servant Jenny, on whose behalf we bless and praise your Name. Grant, O gracious Father, that she, through your help, may live in this world according to your will, and also be partaker of everlasting glory in the life to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O Lord, your compassions never fail and your mercies are new every morning: We give you thanks for giving our sister Jenny both relief from pain and hope of health renewed.  Continue in her, we pray, the good work you have begun; that she, daily increasing in bodily strength, and rejoicing in your goodness, may so order her life and conduct that she may always think and do those things that please you; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

I will have more to write soon, but for now… rest is the order of the day.  Thanks be to God.

    I thank God for all he has done for you and will continually pray for you in his name. Get all the rest you can because those little ones are going to be chasing you all over the place real soon. Take care. Love, Sandra (Wills mom)

  4. Hey Jenny,
    I’m so thankful to God for what He has done for you and Jason. I believe our God is refining you into the vessel He has chosen you to be. And you will emerge without blemish and only thankfulness to our God.
    ” I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence comes my help. My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth”. Psalm 121:1-2. The entire chapter is very encouraging.
    Love you all.
