2:15 PM Report

The cheer is still going on in the surgery room. Everything is going very well. They were taking Clark's liver out while we were on the phone. He said, "Clark's liver is small, not as bad as they have seen but then again he hasn't had years of abuse to it either". I understand it takes longer to get the old one out than to put the new one in, however we are anticipating several hours yet. I asked what kind of music they are listening to and they said, "a variety", then I warned them, "NO rapping". HAHAHA I did ask if I sent my camera to the surgery room if they'd take a picture of Clark's liver and they said they will see what they can do. So you just might be seeing it too.

It will be approximately 2 hours before I report again. Now is a good time to take a potty break, get a snack, or walk the dog. We know several people are watching for frequent updates today and we will give them as soon as we get them. It feels great to lighten the air with a little humor.

a little humor...hmmm...let's see. I know! Let's tell a story "on" Adriann (since I know that she's watching like a hawk.) Nearly a month into Adriann's "ordeal" and she still couldn't tell us where she was. She'd answer with anything BUT the hospital in Tulsa. One afternoon, she had been having her normal hallucinations (which, thankfully, were friendly ones) in which she was petting an imaginary cat. "I need to use the bathroom," she announced. She still couldn't walk on her own so my neice and I each took a side and escorted her to the restroom. She sat there for a long time just staring into space. I finally asked, "Adriann, what are you doing?" She responded, "I do my best thinking in here." Through our laughter, I decided that it was an excellent time for the "location" question. She assertively informed me that she was "in the big pink hospital on Yale...about 2 miles from her condo." Praise the Lord!! She's healed!! With shiney eyes, we got her back into her bed. At which point, she looked around the room and asked, "Now, where'd that cat go?"

Keep looking for reasons to smile and the Lord will provide them. ;)
