Let the Healing Begin

We just spoke to Forrest's surgeon Who is very pleased with the outcome.  He had to deal with several complications primarily related to excessive scar tissue from previous surgeries.  He says if the flap looks good this time tomorrow night he will be a happy man and the next 4 -5 days will be the most  critical.   

Forrest was carried through the long day by your collective prayer, positive energy, and faith.   He is breathing on his own but is still intubated and will be transferred to ICU shortly.   Even Toliver is vid ably relieved. We will see Forrest  soon and tell him of the love and fellowship that surrounds him. Then we will stumble back to our rooms and the dinner Tami is keeping warm for us.   His faithful nurse Dawn will be by his side through out the night to reassure him should he waken.  

Praying now that Forrest rests well and dreams of Sandy beaches, ocean breezes and good times ahead with family and friends.   

God bless, 
Rae Kent & Toliver
