This was written by my wife and sent to our prayer line at church. I thought i would share it with you because i think it provides a good glimpse into what a spouse is feeling.
Dear Madison Prayer Warriors,
Thank you to those who are continuing to pray for us. Tom has been home two months now and during that time we have moved into an accessible condo. Praise God with us for providing an affordable place to live that meets our needs.
Monday, June 14 Tom will be having another procedure to take care of some blood vessels on both sides of his neck/spine that should increase the blood flow coming from his brain. The plan is that this will in turn decrease some of the pressure in his brain.
Please pray that the procedure goes safely and has the desired effect. Pray for peace for Tom this weekend as he anticipates the procedure and spending a night in the ICU again. Pray he will be able to come home directly from the hospital instead of spending time at Mary Free Bed before coming home.
We continue to trust in God and know He gives and gives and gives us grace to make it through this journey.
Tom and Cheryl Vanderwell
