Out of surgery

After surgery.

Praise God!  Little Sylvia’s surgery took about an hour, and the doctor was able to get the hip back in place.  She is wearing a cast from chest to ankles with her legs spread far apart to help keep the hip joint stable.  She will most likely be discharged from the hospital tomorrow.  Bekah’s parents, who are in the States on their home assignment, were able to drive up to Buffalo last night to be with Joel and Bekah and the girls.  What a blessing!  The next 4 months will be challenging for Sylvia and her parents.  Sylvia had just learned the joy of crawling, and now she will need help to just turn over.  Thank you so much for your prayers!  We praise God over and over for his goodness to us!

Go back and report…what you have seen and heard: 
The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, 
and the good news is preached to the poor.” Luke 7:22 (emphasis added)
