Upon arrival at Children's we rushed to the PICU to meet our little guy. We spoke w/ one of the surgeons who will partner in Noah's surgery and were shown the ct scan from Huntsville. To be completely transparent - I was terrified. It looked so large, and so scary, and I was just so angry. Talk about emotionally drained. Then we were bombarded w/ questions from lots of different people. It was all really a blur. But I do remember we cried a lot, prayed alot, and John anointed Noah with oil Pastor Steve prayed over and sent with him.
"Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up" (James 5:13-15).
Two of our Friendship Church brothers drove down and secured us a hotel room (since they kick us out of PICU after 2am) and made sure we had a hot dinner. Talk about walking out your faith and sharing the love of Christ. Even though we were beat up, we were loved on a lot more!
