Success!

Niall'e surgery is complete, and was a success! They were able to do it laprascopically, and he didn't loose blood, and it all went perfectly.

Now we wait and see how his blood production goes. I posted the following on facebook while we were waiting.....................................................................................................................................................

Sitting waiting in the hospital...Nialle is in surgery. Artist on the ward wanders by and offers a "humourous thought for the day". Not too humourous. Then he explains he writes poems for people. I tell him stuff; he translates it to paper thoughts and pictures in words...would I like one?Yes. We talk. He inquires. He scribbles...he's a lefty, like Nialle.Here is the result:

The Singer by Gary Garrison

Anxious, bright, angular sunrise
glowing gold street poles
random rainbow crystals
scattered accross the windshield
Bending morning light into wondering
if he'll be well enough
for the splenectomy
if that rebel organ is the cause
of his blood destroying itself
if he'll be strong enogh
to lift his guitar and his voice
to give him one good reason
to turn right back around
to raise his own son
to mentor his own grandchildren
to keep writing songs untill he's 90.


And my heart says a resounding YES!

Thank you, everyone who has prayed, called, brought gifts and sent love and offered hugs. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

My heart adds a resounding "YES!!" as well. How beautiful! So glad this leg of Nialle's journey is over; and my voice raises with yours, my friend, in prayer that his body will now do what it was designed to do.
