Will got his surgery and things look good. Instead of 7:30 they came and took him at 10:00 (you know the hospital time). The surgery took about five hours but things went well. He didn't have to stay on the vent after he woke up so that was terrific. He looks like he's been beat up with a 2 x 4. I took pictures of all his bruises and punctures. He's in so much pain that he wouldn't be able to remember what he looked like so I took the pictures to show him later. Right now, they can't seem to stay on top of the pain. I hope he will be able to sleep soon because he really didn't sleep last night because of the pain from his other procedure.

We were going through dressing changes when the new year came upon us so we just told each other happy new year. For some reason Will didn't reply. I know he feels this year will be so much better but really, last year was one that was filled with miracles after miracles. I know we, as a family, definitely grew in our walk with Jesus and our whole family knows who has control of what is happening. All we have to do is believe that with God all things are possible. We have had many lessons on this. I want to be as anxious to praise God as I am to petition Him with all of our prayers for Will.

Will wants me to make sure that I put on his blog that he wishes everyone a happy new year. He's going to be home soon and we will have a great year with many new adventures but I thinks he's tired of the hospital adventure.

We love our family and friends and want God to pour many blessings on them all for a happy and prosperous new year.
