Quick Update

Philip is having the procedure today. We left the house when it was still dark out...early....I have been sitting here in the surgery waiting with too much time to think.
After speaking to the Dr this morning I realize that we have a very long road ahead of us and this is not going to be a easy path.
Philip will need to be 100% weened off ALL his meds before the next major step of this. The DR agreed that this would be VERY hard and VERY scary but it is the ONLY way to do the next step of this. As he said. This is a severe step for a severe operation.
I am trying really hard to just think of today's step and not the next. But to be honest the next step scares . I just am not sure how far his body can be pushed. yet we need to push it to help him.
I will just ask that you pray for peace for me today. Because as a mom I am worn out. Yesterday just put me in a place I have not been in a long time. I hate feeling this way. It is not good for me , the family or anyone. I am trying to snap out of it. But I am feeling worn and weak today.
I am going to pray for a renew of strength and patience. And a lot of HOPE.
I will let you know when Philip is in recovery and I know some news.
Thank you all for lifting my spirits and lifting me up in prayer. I always feel such comfort from each of you when I log on and read the comments.

Praying for you and Philip extra hard today! Remember to take baby steps...just one day at a time.

"Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can...and the wisdom to know the difference."

Amy .... my prayers are with Philip now.

What is the length of time he has to be off ALL Rx prior to the next procedure? Hopefully it isn't too long.

I wish I could be sitting in the waiting room with you.

May God and his abundance of angels wrap their arms of comfort around you today and let you feel the feeling of true and utter peace that only the Lord can give us. Take care Amy girl and let Phillip know that we all are praying for him and wishing him peace and comfort.
