Success for Scott

We just got word that Scott's surgery was a great success. The surgeon said that there was even one anticipated incision in his back that he didn't have to do. He is going to recovery now and the Doctor says that he is very strong and healthy. Praise the Lord! Kim will hopefully get to see him soon.

Our Dr. came in and told us that she just came back from seeing Hudson in surgery. She told us that he was doing really well and that his catheter will be removed after the kidney is putting into place. Yeah!!!! I am so excited. Please pray that the kidney will work right away, since he will no longer have the catheter as an option for dialysis.

We are so excited to see what the Lord will do in Hudson's body! Our hopes and super high. Thanks again for praying. We love you all and are encouraged by you!

Dear Vanker Family,
I have heard of your story through our dear friends, the Ruppenthals. Please know that your little guy Hudson will be our prayers for complete healing and no further complications. He is such an adorable little boy and God is in the business of performing miracles! Take Care.
