Sleepless nights, limited movement, constant and nagging pain. Marty's life has been this for over a year when he (re)injured his shoulder while spotting a camper on our low ropes course. After months of workman's comp paper shuffling and doctor visits, he finally goes in for surgery this morning.
The operation takes place today. Are you a prayer warrior? If so, will you pray for a better than expected success with this surgery? For Patti as she has the job of helping to keep this caged lion caged during his months-long recovery? For our guys as they carry a heavier workload (I think we will see just how many details Marty sees to in a day!)? For Marty's sanity as being down, holding still, resting isn't something he's good at? Which is kind of funny since that is the mission of this camp ministry! I'm believing there's a good thing going on here!
And you? How can we be praying for you? We spend time praying for many each morning in our staff meeting! We'd love to pray for you as well!
POST SURGERY UPDATE
In case you missed the update in the comments or on fb, here you go!These pictures show how they borrowed some p-cord from our high ropes course (only kidding of course!) to tie the tendons into a bundle. We pray this fuses together around the ball and socket! While inside Marty, the doctor also repaired a bicep tear, did 3 convergence sutures to tie around the shoulder socket and removed a bone spur! They didn't intend on all that coming into play, but alas, Marty never goes to the doctor so of course there are issues in there!
He got home last evening, still on drugs as you can see! (I did get permission to share this!) He will be quite sore for some time, so please continue to pray! He undergoes therapy and all for several weeks! His biggest struggle, I believe, will be remaining sane with all the work that comes with this time of year and entrusting it to the guys!
Thanks for your prayers! You are awesome!
