Mike’s surgery went well today. He will remain in the hospital overnight and be discharged tomorrow morning (10/19). A follow-up meeting with the surgeon will occur within 2 weeks, until which time a low dose of Baclofen will be administered by the pump. Thereafter, the dosage will likely be increased over a period of adjustment and monitoring. If all goes well, it is hoped that aggressive physical therapy coupled with the ITB (Baclofen) therapy can offer Mike an incredible opportunity for a leap forward in his recovery.

Rarely (if ever) has Mike’s recovery been marked by single, identifiable occasions which carry so much exciting possibility. And while this “occasion” marks only a beginning — and carries only possibilities — I can’t help but imagine and hope that we are reaching a time where an incredible amount of prayer has a single place to “land.”
