Friends and Family,
Mark had a good night - not a lot of rest with all the people in and out but this morning has been feeling very well!
They gave him an epidural that will be in for 4-5 days which keeps the pain very minimal - only problem is they did such a good job making sure the epidural was working it shot down into his left leg and he has no feeling at all in that leg. They have adjusted the medication so we are just waiting for the feeling to come back. We need for the feeling to come back so that he can start getting out of bed and walking the halls so he can get better. So please pray for the feeling to come back completely!
He looks great - Dr. Ellwood came by this morning and said he knew Mark would be up and ready to go - he told me out in the hall that Mark didn't even look to him like he had surgery yesterday - I said I know - he's amazing! God has been so good to allow Mark the strength and determination in his recovery. His attitude is amazing - right now he's on the phone talking to guys about a softball tournament this week-end!
Thanks for your continued prayers - we love you!
Mark and Lee
Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.
Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.
Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.
Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
