When Dr. Bedard came to the waiting room yesterday to inform Jonathan and me the stent had been placed the first words out of my mouth were, "Praise God!" He smiled--I wonder if doctors get upset that God gets the glory when they (think they) do all the work?
He put Bryan on a clear liquid diet last night. The first thing down the hatch was apple juice. Regretfully, it was cold and he had more of the shivering like he had at St. Joe's last week, so it sat in front of him waiting to warm to room temp before he could drink it. This morning I'll head back up to Swedish to bring him home. He has to have a barium x-ray today to make sure there are no other blockages further down, if all is fine his diet will advance to soft foods. Mashed potatoes, anyone?
When Jonathan and I left last night, Bryan dictated the following to be posted here:
God be praised for His goodness. The stent was able to be placed this afternoon and they are keeping me overnight for observation. Thank you for your prayers and fasting which God has used mightily for His glory!
