This will be short and sweet. Derek is taking the biggest risk of his life tomorrow. He has decided to go ahead with this surgery despite all the damage that has been done. And I support him 100 %.
The risk is Derek could be disabled the rest of his life and have no ability to ever have balance. We aren’t going to talk statistics or what his quality of life could be. Instead, pray for Derek and for all patients that we have met, that are suffering. He is not the only patient. I can’t even begin to tell you of all the people that have touched our souls and we are personally praying for.
The plan is this; Surgery is tomorrow 7:30 a.m. (Pacific time) till the job is done. His surgerons : Dr. Yang -neuro surgeon, will enter his skull and lift his brain, and then Dr. Gopen will create a bone wax and cover the holes. This is a poor attempt to explain a very complicated situation. Please forgive me. I’m not a medical professional and on very little sleep.
We found out today at 3:20 p.m. that our new insurance approved the surgery. Talk about nail biting. Up to this point, we were 100% out of pocket.
We know the risks our great. We have cried, prayed and given this to the Lord. God is the greatest healer and we know that through him all things are possible.
Pray for the surgeons! Guide this duo teams hands and minds through our heavenly Father. Pray that God will heal Derek and we will all give him the credit. Pray boldly for a successful surgery. That he awakes late tomorrow with NO balance disorder. Pray that his world is calm and peaceful. We are at peace tonight that God has led us this far. He is not going to leave us know. Believe with us.
Believe that no matter what… and we will give all Glory to God.
If you don’t believe. It’s time you do.
