What a crazy weekend! Bob and I were at the Men Of Valor conference in Olathe KS. We had a vendor table for our ministry (above). We were received exceptionally well. Lots of men came by and talked with us. we were given several contacts for other retreat venues and offers to come to their church, etc. the guy next to us said he never would have guessed that we were the 'new guys on the block' (first time there with a brand new ministry). We also scored; thanks to Bob's connections, one of the prime real estate table locations!
That first evening i got a call back from Children's Mercy. Josie's nurse said everything was a go for scheduling Josie's next rib surgery - at any time. i told her i am slammed with stuff til the middle of March and to just schedule the surgery at any time after that. as a reminder to you, Josie will be getting one rod extended and the one they took out, replaced. they will use the VEPTR 2's; the newest model that's thinner and won't stick out as much as the older ones. We'll likely be in the hospital 2 days for this one. can you guys believe it's been TWO YEARS since her last rib surgery?!
