September 19, Wednesday Evening: Israel’s Surgery

Today was the big day for Israel and the doctors as they went into surgery to operate on his two legs to get them ready for his leg prosthesis. The doctor came out of surgery after  5 hours with a relieved look on his face. The surgery went the way he hoped though he says that the next several days are critical ones for Israel . The danger of water pockets and infection are very near possibilities and we need to pray that he would not develop any of these through the weekend.

The picture is of Israel being taken into surgery; he was in pain at the time of being taken in. He is having to have nerve blocks put in his legs, as the epidural isn’t doing the job. The surgeon was guardedly pleased with the outcome of the surgery, as he warned us of several complications that could arise in the healing process. One leg has ended up being shorter than his other due to more damage done to it from the accident .

Cori was definitely worried today about her husband today as he went into surgery.

We know that very few of us can imagine the kind of excruciating pain and suffering that Israel has undergone in the past week and the pain he will continue to undergo in the next few weeks and months. It is even more unimaginable that an innocent Man , Jesus Christ, was willing to suffer more pain and suffering  and die for the sins of the world than even Israel has experienced. He took this pain on Himself willingly so that we could have eternal life. Romans 5:7-8 -” For scarcely for a righteous man  will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”
