Foot Surgery Tomorrow

I’m scheduled for foot surgery tomorrow morning, to get this ruptured tendon and extra bone growth taken care of. I’d be grateful if you would pray for me. I have a post schedule to appear here magically at 6:00 am tomorrow, but I don’t expect I’ll be contributing much to discussion much for a day or two.

  1. Good luck Tom,

    My mom had a similar surgery a few years ago and it went great. I assume you will have a similar experience, modern surgeons are amazing.

  2. Hi Tom,

    I’d just like to take the opportunity to say thank-you for the work you put into this blog and the forum you provide to thrash out the many issues of faith. I pray that your surgery is a success and that you know God’s strength in every circumstance.

  3. Ditto, to what Melissa said.
    You will be in my thoughts and my prayers, Tom, and in Abba’s loving care through the surgery and during your recovery.

    Philippians 4:6-7

  4. Ditto Mel and Vicki’s posts (‘swhat I call ’em – we’re tight like that. They call me “Scooter.” OK. Those are all lies. And on a Christian blog, even. How utterly shameful…)

    Glad it went well!

  5. I have video if you want it!

    I’m doing fine. Everything went as it was supposed to go. I’m experiencing no pain, even, thanks to a “pain pump” that keeps a constant nerve block where it’s needed. Thanks for asking!

  6. Great to hear, Tom…yeah, post the video 🙂
    Having been under the knife on many occasions, I know what recovering from surgery, even what appears to be ‘minor’, can be like; give yourself time to heal, but be as mobile as your Dr will allow.

    Back in 2007, I had major surgery, but a week later, I was out doing 45minute brisk walks – my surgeon was beside himself, especially when I said that I experience more discomfort after running a marathon. God providentially prepared me for that surgery (by getting me back into running 4 years before that date).

    Good to have you back 🙂

  7. Thank you all for the encouraging words and the prayers.

    I wish I could be more mobile, Victoria. The doc says to keep my foot elevated all the time until Tuesday morning. He means like 23 1/2 hours a day. Thankfully the laptop computer still fits on the lap, as do the books and sometimes the cat, too. Amazingly enough from here, it’s possible still to help stir some things up. That’s a sneak preview. You’ll hear more about it on Monday.

  8. Tom,
    Nice to see your involvement with True Reason. I didn’t even know about the atheist rally until yesterday. Did you watch the promo videos on their website? The one from The Brights gave me a chuckle or two.
