Out of surgery

This is Becky’s sister, Jenny. I thought I would give Aaron a little break. Becky’s procedure went well. She is still sedated but the doctor’s are pleased. We still covet your prayers. They placed a stent in the ureter which comes out of Becky’s right kidney. If you don’t know, a stent is kind of like a straw that they insert inside the ureter (in this case) which forces it to stay open. This should immediately relieve the pain and discomfort. PRAISE GOD!!! Becky does indeed have a congenital defect. The ureter does not attach to the kidney as it should and so pressure can build up causing it to work ineffectively and become blocked. This is exactly what happened. There was no kidney stone. This is a quick fix for a more pervasive problem. Becky and Aaron have a lot of things to sort through and the doctors want to schedule a reconstruction to fix the defect and prevent this from happening again. This second procedure is a significant operation. Please continue to lift up Becky and Aaron as they try to make sense of all of this. Praise God… we finally have an answer. This answer may also explain a significant amount of Becky’s back pain, which may have actually been caused more by this complication and the pressure build up than by the actual issue with her discs. Thank you all for loving my sister so much and for joining with our family in our time of need!!! May God restore her to full and perfect health as only He can! To Him be all the glory…
