PDA surgery

Nik and I were unable to meet with the surgeon today, so we will meet with him before the surgery. God has granted us peace that this is the right decision for Pierce. We know we have to do this in order for our little guy to get better. Pray for Dr.Peeler (the surgeon), pray for the entire medical team, pray for Pierce and of course, for us. At this point, all we know is that the surgery will take place sometime between 1-3pm and that it the actual procedure will likely take 30 minutes or less. We have been told to expect Pierce to get sicker before he gets better. We are praying and trusting God that this He will sustain Pierce and that He will see him through this hurdle. We are also praying for an easier recovery than expected. We will keep you guys updated as soon as we know more.

Much love,
Lindsay, Nik and Pierce

  4. There’s a wideness in God’s mercy,
    Like the wideness of the sea;
    There’s a kindness in His justice,
    Which is more than liberty.

    For the love of God is broader
    Than the measure of man's mind;
    And the heart of the Eternal
    Is most wonderfully kind.

    If our love were but more simple,
    We should take Him at His word;
    And our lives would be all sunshine
    In the sweetness of our Lord.

    Was there ever kinder Shepherd
    Half so gentle, half so sweet,
    As the Savior who would have us
    Come and gather at His feet?

    --Frederick Faber, 1854
