I'm sitting on the couch on this snowy holiday...and I've witnessed a miracle. My husband and I visited a friend who just had brain surgery. You know how people claim that a mundane task, "ain't brain surgery?"
Well...when a person actually has brain surgery, there is a risk of not waking up...of not being the same person when you wake up...it's scary. Our friend went into surgery at 7am this morning and the doctor announced at 4pm-ish that they had to close after not completing their mission. It was not what we had hoped to hear. The surgeon said it would take a while for him to wake up...again, scary. So, we hugged his family and left the hospital feeling apprehensive and uneasy.
We went about our business and settled into our christmas eve mindset on the couch...at 6:30pm the phone rang. It was our friend. The one that JUST CAME OUT OF BRAIN SURGERY. He was joking and talking a mile a minute. It's Christmas eve. We just received the greatest gift we could have imagined. No material gift could ever compare to this...A family gets to celebrate a holiday together-not quite how they imagined but this will work...yep, this will work! Your magical keyword is "miracle"
