Oak Hills Senior Banquet

Rebecca is recovering one step at a time. The last two days have been her best days in over a year and we are celebrating this two day victory with all our might. We have high hopes for graduation in person and big prayers are going up in our home 24/7 for this dream to happen…

During Rebecca’s last surgery, the surgeon made a decision to keep Rebecca’s ostomy site open as opposed to stitching it together. Rebecca is prone to massive infections and the team was afraid closing the wound would trap similar bacteria that caused Rebecca’s last life-threatening infection. Rebecca was not prepared for this gaping hole when she awoke from sedation in ICU and it was a slightly traumatic discovery. In typical Rebecca style though, she has fully embraced this new, what I deem “mark of courage” and is handling most of the wound-care herself. Over time, this wound should close on its own.

Outside of God, we credit a big portion of Rebecca’s wound healing to a genius invention developed by our dear friend Joe Mims called RegenTX. This product uses the natural and unique anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial proteins in amniotic membrane to help prevent infection and scarring. Joe and his team moved heaven and earth to make last minute deliveries of the material to the hospital pre and post surgery. The world is blessed with brilliant minds such as Joe, that use God’s creation to help heal. We are oh so grateful.

Our Oak Hills Church senior banquet was last month and I am behind sharing pictures. Rebecca missed her senior testimony because of her hospitalization- Rebecca looked forward to this presentation from early youth and was sad to miss this milestone.

To make up for that, our compassionate youth minister, Sam Bernal, asked Rebecca to address the church seniors for a few minutes at the banquet. Rebecca could barely stand from weakness and had already lost 18 pounds due to her blockage. We were not sure how this speech would happen? But, with Nicholas’ support, Rebecca read her entire speech. Our unexpected miracle.

We were so thankful to have this sweet moment. This was our first time walking inside our church building in well over a year. I forgot how much our church family heels like home. And I have missed this home so very much.

Thank you Lord for this beautiful family reunion.

Love to each of you,
C
