At long last

     Well, it has been a little while since I posted last. I am sure most of you have heard about Stuart. A lot has changed here in Nikopol since Thursday afternoon. Stuart should be going in for surgery today, we will keep everyone posted. Fortunately they were able to take him to Dnepropetrovsk to do the operation where medical care is much better. ( this is what socialized medicine looks like by the way, it isn't pretty) The more we hear, the more things are looking up. It sounds like he is stable and able to respond.  Justin and Kyle have come, which was good. The family needed them.

     Benjamin has picked up little bits of what has happened. Yesterday he questioned Andrew, as to just how sick Stuart is. It is amazing to watch his little mind wrap itself around such a big concept. He kind of teared up (which he fearsly denied) when the reality hit him that Stuart wouldn't be able to pick him up anymore.

I feel for my little buddy. It is hard enough for grown ups to ponder life and death. I cannot imagine for a little child. Tell him I miss him and cannot wait till I get to see him again.

We have been praying for Stuart. I hope everything goes smoothly and that God will provide wisdom in all the decisions that need to be made.
