Pain is Much Better Now

The pain last night was excruciating. It was made worse because he had to sit up and hunch over so the anesthetist could insert the second epidural needle near his spine.

However, the second epidural needle found the right place, and Greg is now feeling much better than he was last night. He called Susan to update her this morning, and reported that he has been able to get up and move around a little bit. He is very, very thankful for everyone's prayers and hopes to be able to post his own updates soon.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers last night as he waited for that relief, and thanks and praise to God for answering those prayers in this way. Please continue to pray for relief of Christine's pain, and for God to strengthen her as she ministers to her husband.

Thanks so much Mark for updating us with Greg's condition. We are sorry to hear that he was in so much pain but thankful for the improvement.

Mark: If it would be okay, would you email me the number to the hospital? I'd like to pray with Greg, but only if it's okay with him & everyone else.

What a wonderful God we serve, Greg and Christine! Even though your pain is at the very limit of what you know you can bear, it is the same as a woman feels in delivery. There is a good and perfect piece of God's perfect plan waiting as the prize, the goal, the point to the race of endurance - the fruit of our faith in the unfolding of His perfect plan to bring glory to Himself as the body of Christ prays for itself and rejoices in the faithfulness of His promises to always be with us, that His plan is for the ultimate good of that body, and the joy we share as we see that plan revealed among us even today.
