Rebecca was supposed to have surgery yesterday. We haven't heard anything. This is understandable, as the average person isn't often up to posting on the Internet the day immediately following surgery. Still, I am very concerned. Please send prayers and positive thoughts in the direction of Rebecca.

My friend Matt has another great story you should read. It could conceivably cause some of my relatives to re-think how they are living their lives, although I'm pretty sure that was the last thing Matt intended when he wrote the story.

By the way, Matt, I forgot to add earlier that your glossary of terms common to the time period in Birmingham was both helpful and interesting in and of itself.

Again, please keep Rebecca in your thoughts and prayers.


  1. I will do, I hope she is AOK.

    Interesting. I hiope your relations like the story! ;o))

  2. Hey Alexis,

    Thanks s much for the prayer requests and prayers. The surgeries went great... although I feel a bit like a puppet now with my new tubes and lines. My feeding tube, which is being used as a gastric drain, has been working wondnerfully. I haven't thrown up since Wednesday!!! I was discharged today, and I'm so happy to be home, although I'm still very very sore.

  4. Becca,
    I'm so glad you're home and that the surgeries went great! If it's Saturday and you haven't thrown up since Wednesday, that's probably the longest you've gone since fourth grade without throwing up. I'm so relieved to hear that you are doing well. I hope the soreness dissipates very soon.
