The rest of the story:
Jim's surgery was at 8:30 yesterday morning. We had decided the day before that I would not come to the hospital until around 3. That would give time for the 2 hour surgery and the 5-6 hours of recovery.
Being anxious to see him, I left home at about 2:30 to walk the 10 minutes or so to the hospital. Our friend Steffen (from the owl glass story) went with me.
About an hour later, they called recovery again and Jim gave me the story. They did not have enough beds in the Urology unit and the doctor didn't want him in another unit because of the special post-op care this surgery needs, so they were having him stay in recovery overnight and, hopefully, a bed will open up today. Everyone was so kind and helpful! They even let me go into the recovery ward for a few minutes to see Jim! That is usually totally off limits! I was so thankful to see my wonderful husband lying there and to hear him talking in his sleepy, raspy voice.

Thank you all for praying for us! We certainly have felt "the hands of many on us". Please, continue to pray for Jim's recovery and for me as I try to finish writing a paper that is due March 6!
