Sleep well, sweet Bradburns

Whitney and Pete are at home with Micah and Slade, while Whitney's Dad (Pop) and Pete's Mom (Grandma) stay with Forester overnight. Please pray for peaceful and restorative sleep for everyone, so they wake renewed in the morning.

At some point tonight, Forester will have another MRI to confirm that the entire tumor - about the size of a golf ball! - was removed. If any part of the tumor remains, they will immediately take Forester back to surgery. Please pray that the MRI is clear!

Although Forester is on morphine and "out of it," he is responding well postoperatively. He will leave the PICU tomorrow afternoon if all continues to go so well!

Sleep well, sweet Bradburns!

Thank you, Father, for Forester. Thank you that he is fearfully and wonderfully made. Thank you for holding him and his family so lovingly in Your Hands. Thank you for using Your people to so clearly, so tenderly, so mercifully care for Forester and his family in their greatest time of need. May You be glorified and may Your sufficient grace and power be made known to all. In Jesus' name I pray.

Last night, I prayed that you all would get some restful sleep, and that every hour would restore you as much as 2 hours normally would. As I was praying last night, I thought about how Isaiah 53 says that "Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows..." I know you guys know the same Mighty God I do, and I pray He carries you in His arms and gives you wisdom, strength and direction each step of the way. I pray Forester does so well that he astounds the doctors.
