The Call

We got The Call today.

Yes, The Call to schedule surgery.
It will be Monday, January 18.

  Hold on...yes, I know that is less than two weeks away and we don't have a lot of time.

But let's try not to be too upset about it.


  1. At least now you know "when" surgery will be. Now you just need to make all of the preparations to get ready...including trying to accept that the time is finally here.

    Sending lots of prayers your way! I'll try to give you call before then! {{{HUG}}}

    Stef, Ryan, Wyatt and Logan

  2. Knowing the surgery date makes things easier...and more difficult at the same time. Just close your eyes, take a deep breath, and look ahead to when surgery is over and you're back home playing with Derrick again. The process of getting there is so hard and my heart aches for all of you, but you've got lots of people praying for you. We will definitely be one of those people praying hard for your family!

    We've got the 18th circled on our calendar and are sending you guys lots of prayers!!

    Kati, Rocky, Evan & Brycen Dunn

  3. Praying...praying...praying...


  4. We will be praying....I know that getting a date doesn't make it any easier but it does give you something to work toward in stead of waiting. We love you D!! We will be praying for you and your sweet parents! I will also call out my prayer warriors!!


  5. Many prayers! I'm glad you guys have a date... Many prayers to ease the pre-surgery gitters and many prayers for Strong D!

  6. Reading this post just made my hearts sink. I know too well all of your feelings. Mackynlee's 2nd surgery was September 2009. I will put yall on our prayer list at church and ask others to keep you in their prayers. Heart Hugs, Susan
