Christopher and I celebrated our one year anniversary yesterday at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. While we never expected to be here, we are grateful to our God beyond what words can express that we have the opportunity to CELEBRATE. It is GOOD.

Chris & I wanted to extend a huge thank you to all of the ICU nurses and staff that made this day so incredibly special for us. They worked with my husband to plan everything down to the menu and my favorite cake from The Bistro here to surprise me. :) It was so selfless, because he is still unable to eat. It was a wonderful evening overlooking the Kennesaw Mountain sunset, and Chris & I were able to look forward to a time in the future when we will be walking that mountain together again.
In medical news, Christopher underwent his 13th operation yesterday and it went really well. Standard procedure for washing out infection, etc and the doctor was able to close up the middle incision. They were also able to identify a few holes in the small intestines and place tissue over in hopes that it will heal itself in those areas. Our prayer is for infection to stay away, so that this can remain closed. This will be a big step towards recovery, and Christopher will feel a lot better if so. He is in a lot of pain from the operation and seems to be building a slight tolerance to the pain meds - please pray that the pain would be subdued enough for him to rest. He needs rest.
His next operation (#14) is tomorrow morning, May 27, and we would appreciate prayers through that as well.

With love,
Jamie Lynn

  1. It does stink that you had to spend your anniversary in the hospital, but you have one astounding man to do what he did to try to make sure that it didn't seem like a hospital on that day. I'm glad things are continuing to look up for Chris and will continue to prayfor all involved.
