Then they found a plug blocking his bowel further downstream. Because the
surgeon was there, they were able to push it out and determine that his bowels appear to
function all the way through.
That’s two significant accomplishments through what was to be only a study,
not any procedure. God heard our prayers and answered beyond what we asked,
we are very encouraged. Charlie is out of an indefinite waiting stage, and
on to a healing stage.

My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
I cried to the Lord with my voice,
And He heard me from His holy hill.
Thankful for you…Bob
