Surgery successful

Timmy went in for surgery for the J-tube at around 11 AM, and it was a success! We're told he did very well. He no longer has the tube in his nose; there's a bit of a rash on his cheek where it was, but that should clear up soon.

They put a larger tube into his stomach, and then used that to insert the smaller J-tube. In a couple of months, he should be able to have the larger tube removed and replaced with a "Mickey button", which will make it a lot easier to cover up.

Timmy will need a few days to recover and to make sure everything's healthy, and then hopefully we can go home by the end of the week!

Dear Lara and Marshall,

We're so glad that Timmy's surgery went well! We're praying that you'll all be together at home soon.

God Bless,

Julie Ross and family

Last night I stayed up until 1:30 a.m. to "wish upon a star". I watched the Perseid meteor shower and gave a prayer of praise and thanks to God for His awesome universe. As I prayed for Timmy's recovery from his surgery, an especially bright shooting star streaked across the sky. It was beautiful!

The rest of Timmy's star present came in the mail yesterday. We will wait until he is home from the hospital to bring it. Blessings, Ramona
