"I'm Ready Guys"

Just a quick note to say when we got to the hospital this morning, Lincoln was ready to go. He had a great night and was very stable for surgery. They wheeled him into surgery about an hour ago (7:30 AM). Pray as the next 4 to 5 hours will be very stressful for the fam. Talk to everyone you all!

GOD IS GOOD! We pray that God gives Lincoln miraculous strength during the surgery. John's dad (who is a surgeon) has a painting in his office that portrays Christ standing by the surgeons side and literally guiding the hands of the surgeon. That is our prayer. We love you guys.

Josh, Kristen and families,
Just saw the pics of little Lincoln. What a beautiful boy! You're right Josh, very handsome, just like his daddy. So thankful Kristen that you're heart did so well. You all look great! Glad to hear you were able to get some rest. So thankful that Lincoln was stable and ready for surgery this morning. Praying that God's hands will be the surgeon's hands today. Also, praying for strength for both of you. So many are praying! We love you guys, Jocie

Dear Josh and Kristen,
I woke up this morning with little Lincoln on my mind. I immediately started praying for him, the doctors and of course for your whole family. Waiting for a surgery is the pits...I remember, oh too well, waiting when Danielle had her open heart surgery to repair her atrial septal defect. I know this is a much more involved surgery, but so pleased you have the very best drs. and our Great Physician guiding their hands. Our heavenly Father will hold you up and give the peace that only He can give. George and I love you guys so much, (more than you'll ever know). We ARE praying!!!!
Much Love, Linda and George

Our prayers are with you all through this most difficult time. These surgeons and their procedures are amazing all with God's help. Our grandson, Toby Linn, had open heart surgery four years ago involving multiple repairs. Recovery took awhile, but today Toby is a healthy little boy, running circles around everyone. All of those prayers for him worked miracles as they will for little Lincoln. Chaplains Jackie & Ed Linn (in Sacramento)

Hi Josh and Kristen: UUGH!..(sp)
I (we) am sooo very anxious to hear the words "everything went well and Lincoln is resting comfortably???" I woke up every hour on the hour last nite, I think, and immediately prayed and have continued to do so today for you all as you wait. I am so glad that Lincoln had a good nite. Anyway, GOD IS SO GOOD and He is with you. We will be in constant prayer for your precious boy and for the guiding and wisdom of the Drs./surgeons' hands and minds. We love you all so much Patsy, Dan and Brynne

Praise God!!!
We are all so grateful that Lincoln did well through surgery! We'll be praying there will be no post-op complications...especially that band on the artery. God is good. We trust in a great God.
Love Linda

Blessings to you all.
I check on little Lincoln's progress several times a day and I'm praying I'll see a good report soon. You're all in my thoughts and prayers.
