Not So Wide Awake

Marion, Felix and I just finished having a conversation with Megan. She is awake and talking. She was complaining about having to be awake for 6 hours during the surgery. The Dr. said they would have never been able to finish if she was not able to stay awake. The tumor was intertwined with the blood vessels that feed that side of the brain. Dr. Ferson said that Dr. Lang was the man for the job, it was a mess in there. Dr. Brown said that Dr. Lang is able to suspend vessels and remove tissue at the same time, and that he was the man for the job. Dr. Brown said he is VERY pleased. The nurses asked us to stay out and let Megan rest. If she talks it stimulates the brain and can cause swelling. Genet and Hannah went in just to look at her, and she waved them into the room. She knows who they are and told them to come in and give her a kiss. Today is a good day in the Stork/Martinez family!!!

Megan, I have been getting updates from my mom (Connie Krantz) on the progress you've made. I want you to know I've been praying for you often! I pray that God's peace that surpasses all understanding fills your heart and mind. In thinking about you, I'm reminded of playing with you when we were just little girls.We had so much fun! I smile when I remember the imaginations we once had! I'm excited for your family to come back to South Dakota again, so I can meet Isabella! I have an almost one year old now too, named Taya she is so fun! And has a lot of energy as I'm sure you know! Wouldn't it be cool if one day Isabella and Taya could play like we once did? Megan, I will continue to pray for you, and praise God we are sisters in Christ! Rest in Him tonight hun.

Hi guys. Just heard the news. I'm praying for you all!



Ephesians 3:20 (Amplified Bible)
Now to Him Who, by the power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams. To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

Love, Shelly

Megan, What a day this has been ! We are are so proud of your courage and faith, sweetheart !!! Our day we are sure, was like alot of those who love you and your family, as the the Holy Spirit has been quickening us in a major way. We were awakened by the H. S. at 6am to begin to pray for you for a couple of hours. Then off to work, then at 3pm, had an hour to pray some more. On the hour drive back home, yes, you guessed it...more prayer for you. I ended up at Joyce D.'s Christmas Tea at 7pm. Now we had a great group of intercessors, and yes we spent another hour praying. Now it's 12 midnight, and just finished some bedtime prayers...yes for you. Megan, you certainly must be most special to The Lord, as He has raised up so many to pray for you . We are just one of so many that The H. S. raised up. Early this am I sent out a prayer notice to all my praying friends/family. Again so many of God's people have done the same. We believe a literal army of prayer warriors have been raised up on your behalf. So dear one, rest, heal, and let us do the work of prayer for you and your precious family. Hugs, Love, and Prayers, Cindy and (Mike) Watts
