Waiting to see him still, but he is out.
Surgeon said that they were able to suture and coagulate the bleeding that was happening in a tumor just outside of the large intestine. Praise God that there was no need to resect any of his bowel. There was no bleeding happening when they closed him up. We are so grateful for the balance that the surgeon took in being aggressive enough to fix the problem, yet delicate enough to not cause any damage to him.
So now what? Ryan is being moved to the surgical unit to recover for the next 5 to 7 days (could be longer, depending on how he recovers). We will be trying to make arrangements to come home as soon as we are able.
Oh Lord, you are so good to us and so faithful. Thank you for loving us extravagantly and for covering us in your grace today.
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand
