Surgery Update



I know you are all anxious to hear an update.  But sometimes, I just need to rest.

Kevin’s mom, Karen, stayed with Kevin last night so I could get some rest for myself.  I was starting to feel as delirious as Kevin was acting, and for me it was simply the lack of sleep and the overwhelming emotional rollercoaster, no good drugs required.

We were told surgery was going to start at 4:15 and pre-op should be going starting around 2pm.  However, he didn’t go to pre-op until 4pm, so it was a long few hours waiting and waiting.

He didn’t get back to his room until almost 9pm.  What a very long day of waiting and anticipation.  But the Dr. said  Kevin did well in surgery.  It went as they expected so that’s good news.  The recovery from anesthesia was interesting.  He was a little delusional, and had the meanest recovery nurse on the planet.

Kevin appreciates all the thoughts, prayers and support that has been coming our way.   We are scared, nervous, and overwhelmed…..but we definitely are feeling God’s love surrounding us.  We covet your prayers and we believe that God is good and we know that this is not too big for Him.

Kevin will be at CMH for at least another week and should be starting chemotherapy as early as next Monday, March 17th.  It will be his birthday cocktail….not exactly the  Guinness and Jameson he was planning for.

I am holding on to this verse today:

2 Chronicles 20:17

“But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you!”

We are standing in our positions, surrounding Kevin through this battle and waiting for the Lord’s victory.

  4. Dearest Corbetts – We were devastated to hear the news about Kevin. It’s difficult to comprehend such a strong, wonderful guy being faced with such a tough opponent – BUT – if anyone can overcome this dreadful disease, we know it will be Kevin who WINS this courageous battle. May the faith in God of the Corbett – Collins Clans and your many friends help you through this difficult time. Always remember how much we love each of you and pray for you every day.
