Surgery in the Future

We've gotten settled in and talked to the doctors here. Trey is still in pain, but hopefully soon we can get that manageable.

His surgeon ordered another MRI and CT scan to verify that there haven't been any changes to his spine since Wednesday and Thursday when the originals were taken.

It looks like we are most likely looking at surgery on Tuesday afternoon, but we'll know for sure once they get the test results back from the scans.

There are a lot of risks in Trey's future such as complications in the surgery, chronic pain after surgery, limited movement, or excessive degeneration of his spine due to the surgery. We know this is all in God's hands. Right now it is indefinite if he will even be able to go back to work in full capacity, but we are trusting God's plan for us.

Throughout our lives, we've learned that we have no control, and that his plan is the best plan. We may not see it right now, but he knows what is beneficial for us.

I am grateful that I still have my husband. As difficult as this has been, and will be in the future, I'm so grateful that I can still have conversations with him and that one day I'll be able to play footsie with him again ; )

Please continue to pray for the doctors, for Trey, and for our future. We have a long road ahead, but God knows where this road is going and he's leading our journey.

It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. ~ Deuteronomy 31:8

I am praying for your family! My husband spent a month in the ICU and it was so hard for our family. He wasnt supposed to make it out of there but he did, and I am so thankful. The experience made us closer and pulled our family closer together. You are in my prayers!!
