My surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, February 7th at 7:30 am. I'll check into the hospital on Monday for pre-testing, another MRI, and who knows what else they need to do to me.
Thank you for praying!

  5. Hi Susie,

    Morris and Kellie Michalski are "members-on-loan" from my church, First Baptist of Dayton, TN, so I wanted to take the opportunity to speak for our congregation and say that our prayers are with you as you walk this part of the journey with our Lord. I'm the minister of music here, so anyone friends with Kelly & Morris are friends of ours, especially in the choir!

    Speaking for myself, I wanted to let you know that I will be praying (in fact, am quite confident) that God will show you and your family some wonderful things in this process, as He no doubt has already. Back in 2000 I myself underwent surgery to remove a brain aneurysm that had been initially misdiagnosed as migraines, then misdiagnosed as a tumor. (It was only as big as a golf ball, so you win on size. And I'm not even going to pretend to compete on the whole child-bearing thing...) But God used that experience--even in the few days before the surgery, but much more afterward--to open my eyes in a fresh way to the wonder and miracle of His sovereign plan. It is unfortunate that our day-to-day circumstances typically cause us to react passively to the truth that "all things work together for good for those who love God," but praise His Name that He periodically demonstrates His love to us in ways that peel back the layers of conditioning from our spiritual eyes and let us get a glimpse of His incomprehensibly beautiful and wondrous plan. Terrifying though this might be, I am convinced God has some truly awesome lessons to teach with these episodes. When I look back on my own experience, I never think of it in the context of a "trial"--I always call it a blessing. I'm not saying I want to be blessed like that again, exactly, but still... ;-)

    My prayers are with you! God's riches blessings on you and your house,

    Michael Mays

    1. Praying for you all. Love from Spain, David & Ellen

  6. Susie, We are praying. I asked the Sunday school teachers to pray for you last week at church and our leader's sister had a football sized tumor in her abdomin when she was pregnant and it was removed successfully. I am praying your surgery goes smoothly and God's hand guides the surgeon.
    God be with you!
