Gamma Knife in the Morning

We made it!!! We are at the Ronald McDonald House and have done all the pre admission paperwork and run through all the procedural items for tomorrow! Let me just say my husband ROCKS! The rain was so bad on the way here I thought I was going to have a major anxiety attack. But Rob drove through it, safely and calmly, all the while with me doing breathing exercises in the passenger seat, quietly so no one would know that I was even scared. The kids didn't even notice how bad the rain was, thank goodness. Thank you Lord for our safe delivery to Dallas.

We will be at Zale Lipshy tomorrow at 6am. Jack will be put under general anasthesia for everything tomorrow. So he wont remember any of it. He should be waking up about 12:30 or 1pm and after he recovers we should be checking out of the hospital and heading back to ye old Ronald McDonald, where our friends and family can spend the afternoon hanging out with us. For our family and friends who are driving up tomorrow, the address for Zale is 5151 Harry Hines Blvd. The valet parking is $5 and park yourself is $4 which is across the street and through an above ground tunnel, elevator... if you can afford the extra dollar valet. Zale is not a children's hospital, in fact, children are not allowed in any waiting rooms, therefore we will be waiting in the lobby of the hospital, which is about 20 steps from the valet park station. They were very sweet to us today, and I know that they don't deal with alot of kiddo's but the staff that helped us went out of their way to make us comfortable.

God has poured out His Spirit on me this week. I continue to call on His name to bring us through this victorious and honoring Him.

I know you all are praying, thank you so much, and please continue.

I will post late tomorrow afternoon once we get back to the Ron.Mcd.House to let you know how Jack is doing.

Love, Tammy

I was anxious to hear from you. So glad you've made it to the Big City. I'll be heading to work tomorrow just as Jack is getting started; you can bet I'll be thinking and praying for you all bright and early in the morning.
What a relief it is to know that God is in control. How many go through the same thing without that reliance, I'll never know how they get through it.
I love you all.

I didn't know you were having the procedure at a place named "Lipshy" -- which sounds like someone has had one too many. I'm sure the doctors performing the procedure will be completely sober, however! :-)

So thankful for your safety and lamaze breathing today! And I will continue my fervent prayers!

I'm glad you made it safe. I hate to drive in the rain.

Jack and your whole family will be in my prayers.

I have been thinking of you all day today! Everyone at Cook's chemo clinic sends their thoughts and prayers.
Looking forward to checking in tomorrow night for your update on his great outcome!
God's Peace.

I thought of you driving though the weather! I wondered if you were on Valium during the ride....

I've been praying for Jack and I'll continue to tonight.

love you
