God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Another Long Night

Virgil and Xiaoyun had another long night (we seem to be getting into a pattern here!). It wasn't until at least 3 am before she went to sleep (or Virgil) She couldn't get comfortable and even though they changed her position numerous times, it didn't seem to help. At a little after 4 am she tried to talk Virgil into taking a walk around the floor. She was trying to get off the traction ;-) . Unfortunately for her, they want her to be on as much as posible in preparation for the sugery. The xray showed that the traction is really helping the lower back in particular. She went in for a PICC line this morning around 9:30.  Dr. Johnson talked with Virgil this morning, and said they will be removing 5 or 6 ribs (the info yesterday was from an assistant and I'm not sure if they were looking at the wrong part of the file or if they changed their minds after seeing the xray) and inserting the temporary rods at 7:30 tomorrow morning. This is a posterior cut and we're not sure how long the incision will be. Hopefully we will all be able to get some rest tonight, because I'm not sure how much we'll be getting for a while after the surgery.


  1. Sending you all hugs. Love you all. Mamaw

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with Xiaoyun as she prepares for surgery tomorrow. May it all go as expected and her recovery be speedy and uneventful!
