The Closing

Just had visit from Pediatric Plastic Surgeon. Evan will be out of surgery shortly; this means surgery took less than half proposed time. We were told something we have always known, but love to hear, “Evan is a strong young man.”

We do not know the implications of such a rapid reconstruction and will likely find out in the coming days, but we are hopeful that things just came together in a divine way. We have also been told that Evan is in control of his own destiny for discharge. When the pain is managed and he tires of hospital food, not necessarily in that order, we will be able to go home, possibly as soon as Sunday.

Thanks be to God.

More details to follow.

Amen to that...thanks be to God for swift and accurate hands of the physicians and for a peaceful transition for Evan. Please let me know if there is something else we can do, other than pray.
We love you guys-
The Wray Family.

Sending lots of prayers from Greenville, SC up I-85. The Lord doesn't give us that which we cannot handle. Love, The Palassis Family

Dr VanAllst is my sons dr also... we have a surgery scheduled for April 13th. Comforting to know God has placed such a wonderful surgeon in your path. We have had the "team" at UNCH for 17 years now...

Dr. VanAllst was our son's surgeon also for his cleft lip repair. He is an amazing man and God has gifted him for pediatric surgery. Praying for full healing and recovery for Evan!
