My brothers are right – this kind of news has to be blogged by me, not them. They feel the pressure to not miss anything in translation, but like a game of “telephone”, things can get mis-spoken inadvertently.Kent’s blog “The first hurdle has been cleared” is correct in its detail, but I feel the need to clarify a bit. No offense, Kent! I’ve been covering for you since we were wee lads!Kent wasn’t in the room, and I was, so I need to convey to you the power this moment had. I felt a pang of pity as this highly intelligent and greatly skilled neurosurgeon struggled to explain why, 15 minutes earlier, he had been explaining the course of action necessary to unlock Connor’s vertebrae, and now he’s trying to explain the unexplainable – he doesn’t need to straighten the vertebrae anymore!“For some reason”, Connor’s vertebrae are now aligned. Hallelujah! “For some reason”, between the X-ray this morning and the latest, the vertebrae unlocked from each other, moved to the right place, and allowed Connor’s spinal cord to lose it’s S-bend. Praise the Lord!The beauty of this moment is that we are familiar with The Reason. Even more, Cherié and I were very specifically praying that Connor’s spine would realign by today, as were many of you. Wow! What an answer to prayer.As we were standing in the doorway to Connor’s room, praising God for this answer to prayer, we overheard the surgeon speaking to one of the nurses. We couldn’t hear what he said, but her response was “Well, I guess miracles do happen!Yes, they do.
