Maggie Is Out of Surgery!

Hey everyone, Ondrea here.  Gwen asked me to post and let y'all know that Maggie is out of surgery.  Maggie did great! She went in about 2:30 and she is just waking up now.  They anticipate that she will be in the hospital for the next 2 or 3 days.  They had to shave her sweet head, but you know what, Maggie Oatsvall is one of the few girls in the world I know who can pull off "bald".  :)  As I understand it, they inserted 2 extenders.  By all accounts, it seems to have been a success so far.

Gwen wanted me to be sure to thank you all for your prayers.  And I thank you on behalf of my sweet friend!  She said she could definitely feel the strength of her prayer family today as she watched her baby go into surgery and dealt with the emotions of the day.  Thank you all so much for lifting up this sweet and faithful family!

Please continue to pray for Maggie as she now must remain free of infection and we hope that she will not be in pain over the next several weeks as they complete the process of healing her physical wounds.

So many verses of scripture keep running through my head, but I think maybe the most appropriate at this moment is Ephesians 3:20-21

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine , according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church body and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever, Let it be so!"
