Yesterday, after much red tape we were able to bring Aaron home. He is doing remarkably well. Between neurology, medicine and psychology it is widely believed that the steroids were the main culprit for his psych episode. Actually they were so concerned that they decided to stop the steroids cold turkey (after a brief weaning process). His next operation for the removal of the right sided tumor is set for August 4th. This tumor, which is approximately 4 x 2 inches is also systematic of personality, focus and memory issues. We need to watch closely for signs of swelling. The only drug used for swelling is steroids, so hopefully the swelling will be minimal, this way we can avoid the steroids. The grace, peace, strength and mercy of the Lord is powerful. It is surely true the light is brightest when the night is darkest. As was the case with Daniel, your prayers have unleashed the army of God. And though from this side of heaven it may appear that they are late (also remember Jesus and Lazarus), actually the Lord's soldiers are right on time. Although it may be frustrating for the Saints of God, how frustrating it must be for the powers of darkness knowing that the King of Kings is ALWAYS victorious. He is never frustrated. Thank you Jesus. What a day it will be when the trumpet sounds, and the bride is gathered with the bridegroom. Remember Church, it's Friday but Sunday's a comin! Please continue to pray that Aaron will remain stable and get plenty of rest for the next operation. Pray his mind does not race and his thoughts remain quiet and calm. Pray that the tumor is benign and not vascular and that Dr. Adamo is able to completely remove the tumor. Pray Aaron gains a full recovery and finally pray that our family hears the still small voice of our Great and glorious Saviour. Trials and testings have purpose, God please show us your purpose that you may be glorified and the Kingdom of God advanced.
