I have had so many friends support me through e-mails, facebook messages, visits in the hospital or at my house. One family even sent me an edible arrangement! I was so excited! I have the best friends and family ever, and so glad that so many people sent us messages, let us know they were praying, and willing to visit me.
Here are some more well wishes that I got in response to going in to surgery:
Josh, Paula is and will continue to be in our prayers (as well as YOU!) Ray & I prayed together this morning before he left for work and I am going to call him now to give him the updated info.God Bless,
~Sue & Ray, Church Family
Definitely praying for Paula. Love you both very much! With JOY in Him,
That's good news Josh, praising God that every thing went well! Please give Paula our love!
~Brenda, Church Family
Yes, of course, we will be praying for Paula this morning. Thank you for letting us know. I'm sure she will do well, but sorry she has to do this now. No surgery is easy. We just want her to be well and be able to enjoy both weddings, Quinn's & yours!! Love you both,
~Grandma & Charlie, Josh's Family
My prayers are with you! May everything work out just fine.
