You will have significant experiences.
I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of
them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh
your memory of these meaningful and significant things.
Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you.
Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some
may build upon another until they represent a lifetime of
special experiences.

Very Confident...

Dear Family and Friends,

Zac’s second surgery took about five hours.  The surgeon had to completely open his original incision in order to visualize the entire area of sutured dura.  He did locate one pinhole leak from a suture, which was actively leaking.  He micro sutured this area, created a muscle patch over it, then placed an artificial patch just for good measure.  He feels “very confident” that this will work!  Zac will start the hyperbaric therapy tomorrow in order to speed his healing process along.  

He’s in ICU again tonight but should transfer out tomorrow.  He is back on a pain pump and was very uncomfortable immediately after surgery.  Since then, the pain medicine has started working and he’s much more comfortable.  The next 48 hours will involve limited activity as the area (hopefully) closes.  

The surgeon has never used the words “very confident” with us thus far so I’m taking that as a really good sign!  We pray that this is the last hurdle before we end this race.  We thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts!  You continue to humble us with your love.

Believe in Miracles,

The Bollinger Family
