Liz Update - Four Days After Surgery

Hi Everyone,

I wanted stop in and write a quick update on Liz's progress.  To say that Liz's progress after her surgery on Tuesday is anything other than remarkable would be an understatement! She is doing amazingly well!  She has been moved into a private room and has begin her first little bit of physical therapy, which consist of head movement exercises and holding her arms out.  She is able to eat solid foods and has had all of her drains removed from the surgery.  She's gone from trying to walk in a walker with someone holding her from behind and on both sides for support to walking with only one person by her side for support in a 24 hour time period!!  She continues to amaze her surgeons and physical therapist by her rapid recovery!  She will remain in Houston for six more days before heading back to Nashville to continue physical therapy, if you would like to send cards or flowers please send them quickly as their time in Houston is drawing to a close.  

They may be sent to:

Candlewood Suites
Houston Medical Center
Attn:  Marsha Meadows
10025 South Main Street
Houston, Texas   77025

Thank you for your continued prayers for Liz and her family, they are overwhelming thankful!

Liz's Update - Eleven Hour Surgery

Hi Everyone!

After a very LONG and stressful day I'm happy to say that Liz's surgery was a SUCCESS!  I've spoken to her family and they are overjoyed with today's outcome, it was one that only the Lord could provide!  

They were able to remove 99.9% of Liz's tumor and she has absolutely no nerve damage!!  Praise the Lord!! Her family was able to see her right after, and said that she even looks better than she did before the surgery.  Her facial swelling has gone down and she has absolutely zero swelling of the head.  She is alert and talking and smiling and wanted to thank everyone for their love and prayers.  The doctors are calling this MIRACULOUS and that she is PERFECT, they are OVERWHELMED with the outcome!  Thank you JESUS!!!

Her family wanted me to say a HUGE THANK YOU to each of you for the countless prayers, texts, emails and messages they have received these last few days.  They have meant more to them than you can possibly know and they are thrilled to share todays glorious news with you!

Praise the Wonderful Lord!!!!

   Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted;
his majesty is above earth and heaven.  Psalm 148:13
