Good News! Out of Surgery ~Day 1

John is in recovery now. We are waiting for a room in ICU.
The surgeon expects John to spend two days in ICU and then another two in a regular room. John already asked when he can leave!
1:50pm-John is still in recovery as they are waiting for a bed in ICU. Dad said he is sleeping mostly.
2:30pm- John was starting to get red and puffy in the face. He was given benadryl through his IV which took effect right away. Now he is even more sleepy, but the swelling and redness has gone away. Still waiting for a bed in Intensive Care.
3:50pm- John is in ICU now!
John and Mom this afternoon
5:30pm ~John has to stay flat on his back for 24 hours. If he sits up he will get a very bad headache. Right now he is interested in eating and going back to the hotel! He is talking some and is a little emotional about different things. We are grateful John is doing this well and there were no complications! God is so good.

Praise the Lord for God's faithfulness and grace during this time. We lift John (and your family) up in prayer!
"Faith is not a sense, nor sight, nor reason, but a taking God at His word." (John 4:50)
We love you all.
Tricia Smith (for the family)
