God Shows He Is With Us Through Others-Surgery Update

I had my outpatient surgery yesterday and there were a few nice surprises. God showed me he was with me through others. I checked in 5am all blurry eyed and a short time later had my first surprise.

I found out Friday that one of my colleague’s mother is a nurse at the hospital. I joked with her to tell her mom to give me ice cream. The nurse who came out to bring to the waiting area to bring me to the prep area started off by asking me what kind of ice cream I wanted. She is my colleague’s mom. That started my day off with a laugh and a smile. she took great care of me.

The next one was the anesthesiologist who prepped me. I did not recognize him at first because of his mask, big glasses, and cap, He is a friend from church. It was reassuring to chat with him while he prepped me.

Jesus definitely showed he was with me through others!!!

Everything went well and I was back home about 2:30pm. That was followed by a four hour nap. Naps are part of my recovery plan, personal one not doctor’s guidelines. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have proof cheeseburgers, fries and ice cream are healthy. I asked for them for my lunch and the hospital have me two cheeseburgers-no bun, fries and a chocolate ice cream for lunch. Therefore they must be healthy. Completely logical in my mind.

Thank you to all who prayed for me.

  1. I glad you made it through the surgery with flying colors, Matt. And your trademark sense of humor is still intact!

    Itโ€™s a inclement weather day here for school. We are teaching from home due to an expected ice storm. Iโ€™ll be sure and drink plenty of coffee and take a nap too boot.

    Praise God, you made it through. Heโ€™s baaack!

  2. Glad that all went well and God ensured that he placed people you knew when you were there, a blessing to have that on days like that.

  3. I am so glad your surgery was successful and that you felt the presence of the Lord through the medical team. May God continues to help you recover fully.

  4. Glad everything went well. It’s always to have a bit of relief when facing surgery. On February 10th I will have two nerve block injections and ablation in my backโœ๏ธ
