Update on Garren's Surgery

The doctor just spoke with us. He said that this was definitely the right thing to do, and he is glad they did it. Garren will be sedated for several days, if not the entire week. We will not know anything until they start to ween him off of the sedation.

It's going to be a long week. The doctor recommended strongly that we start taking shifts, driving home, getting into a routine. This will be very hard, especially for Nancy. Please pray for peace for Nancy. Give her a calm to be able to do what she needs to do to take care of herself.

Continue to pray for Garren's swelling. That is stil the biggest issue at this point.

Nancy and Geoffrey,
These are trying times, but you must stay strong and take care of yourselves and your girls. Garren is being taken care of by the wonderful staff there as well as the Lord watching over him. I know it is hard to leave Garren for even a moment, but he knows and feels your love as his body begins the healing process. We are praying for you all everyday. Thank you, Geoffrey, for keeping us updated on his condition.
Love to all,
Cathy and David

We are praying for Garren to heal. I am here at Duke medical center in Durham with Johua. He had surgery on Saturday am to close a spinal fluid leak. He was having terrible headaches and fever from it, but he is feeling much beeter now. I told him about Garren, and we are thinking of him and praying for his healing. Josh will be here all week.

Under His wing,

Geoffery, Nancy and family,
Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to all of you during this diffcult time. Garren is an AWESOME boy and he is tough....he will pull through this. Make sure you have his football by his side since that is one of his loves in life. He left such an impression on us while we taught him during 4th/5th grade at Southbrook. We think of him are praying for him often. If you need anything please let us know.

Nancy and Geoffrey,
From the Main campus...We are keeping you in our prayers - that God would give Garren complete healing and that he would give you and your family a peace beyond all understanding. Thank you for the updates. We are so thankful that the surgery went well. You are very much loved.

Mr. Janes: My daughter, Christi, had AIG classes with Garren at PRMS. She was so upset when he was redistricted to Piedmont. She talked about him all the time and still does even with him at Piedmont. They are very good friends who share a strong Christian relationship. She always looks to Garren for spiritual guidance. In reading your blogs, I can see where he gets it. We are members of Shiloh Baptist Church and want you to know Garren is also on the prayer list there. My heart goes out to your family as the waiting seems the mountain you are climbing. Keep trusting that God is in control and can tear down that mountain. May HE continue to strengthen you and Mrs. Janes. I strongly feel that Garren will continue to touch people's lives more than ever before.

Love In Christ,
Pam Mayhew
