Gabbi's will have a procedure in Pittsburgh to change her drain on Thursday morning. She has been doing well and is full of energy (and the rejection should be cleared up), but the drain needs changed every 6 weeks. If her bile ducts still look good, they will only do this a couple more times and hopefully remove the drain by the end of April. They want to keep it in for 6 months following the big surgery to place it back in October. 

Of course we appreciate your prayers for the procedure, but we may need your prayers more for safe travel this time. We are going to head out this afternoon to get a few hours down the road and then go the rest of the way tomorrow. The whole trip will probably take a bit longer than usual because of road conditions. It could be an adventure! Thanks for your prayers and encouragement. 

"Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens" (Psalm 68:19.)

Praise God for the good reports (prayer answers) in your post!! Ps. 68:19, a favorite for years, is so relevant and practical so many times. Now we use it to pray God to see you safely through the burden of road conditions. Praying for God to go with you and before you.
