Recovery Room Update

I just got back from the recovery room and Ricky is doing unbelievable!  He was wide awake and smiling.  He  was very alert and able to respond to us.  He has all of his motor functions and a very strong grip =)  He was humming “How Great Is Our God” while I was in here.  Oh boy, how great He is!!!

The nurse told me that she had never seen a patient come out of neurosurgery so awake and able to respond.  She was amazed at all the people that were here and said that makes a huge difference in recovery.  That and a whole lot of faith!!  He is still having a hard time putting words together, but he is saying yes and no.  You can see that he wants to say something, but can’t quite figure out how to say it.  He was answering my questions by squeezing my hand.  She said that is completely normal. 

We are waiting on a bed to open in the neurosurgery ICU.  They said it won’t be until 6 or 7 tonight, so he has to hang out in recovery.  I’ve been kicked out and can’t go back until 4 =( 

Please pray that the MRI comes back tomorrow with not a speck of tumor left.   God is so good and he continues to bless us!!!

    God is sooo great! It brings tears to my eyes just to hear that ricky was huming “How great is our GOD!” after such a test of his faith to be put through a major surgery and also that he is doing so well. How far we have all come since those days in New Orleans 🙂 but to hear that from ricky must have been some of the sweetest music you have ever heard! I have to stop typing now because I can’t see the letters 😉 love yall!

    Tracy and Ricky –
    Your family is in our prayers. How very interesting and noteworthy that as Ricky struggles for words, he does NOT struggle for a praise melody – God’s blessings are tumbling down and His strength will fill you.

    Peace and joy as you continue to be amazed by His goodness!!

    Mike and Pixie
