I know this is a late update, but we've had a busy last few hours. Sorry about the delay! :)

Bradley got wheeled out of surgery about 3:30, and he looked wonderful. When we were able to go back to see him in his room, he still looked great but it was a little weird seeing him just laying there unresponsive. But, after a while, he's begun to respond by shaking and nodding his head in response to our questions. He's trying to talk, but he still has the breathing tube in. They're trying to wean him off the respirator right now in hopes that they can take it out tonight.

He'll be in ICU for 2-3 more days, and then moved to his room on the cardiac floor for another 3-7 days. His stay depends on how well he is responding in his recovery.

We are so grateful and humbled by this experience and by the prayers of the saints. I will post a blog about the emotions of the day and what God is teaching me later. Right now, I'm going to go spend some more time with him.

Thank you Lord for bringing our Bradley back to us. You are good and you are faithful!!


  1. God has blessed you and I know you know that. He knew that Bradley would need a strong wife to help him get through these things and you were the right woman for him in so many ways. Keep relying on our Lord and stay strong. I'm praying for Bradley (even though I've never met him) and I'm praying for you and the family. Can't wait to read what God is teaching you because his works are always amazing!

  2. So thankful!


  3. Thank you so much for your encouragement. :)
