10:30 PM Ron Feley sent an e-mail with the good news that Jackie’s surgery today went well:
Hello fellow prayer warriors, today was the happiest and saddest day of my life. It was a day where my prayers were answered and my gift from the Lord had major surgery. Very very very humbling day. As bad as my wife’s condition is, there is allways somebody who has it worse. I would like to thank all of you for your prayers and will forever be in debt to you all. Prayer is a very powerfull tool and I would have to say the Lord is pleased. I was at Loyola for 14 hours today and am very tired.On the other hand there was jackie in surgery for 7 hours and prior to leaving told her what a camper she is. She opened 1 eye, winked, and gave me the thumbs up sign. Good old Jackie chipper as allways. With unconditional love. Ron Feley
