Modern Day Miracle

"Babe, you just witnessed a modern day miracle." These were the 1st words Tina spoke to me when I saw her in recovery after her surgery yesterday. I don't have any words to describe all the flood of emotions that rushed over me at that moment. I am so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so in love with Tina, my beautiful wife. Her courage, faith, and optimism humble me. Tina is impacting so many people everywhere she goes (lots of people up here at the hospital) because of her pure, childlike faith and the love of God which pours out of her to those around her.

Things that were miraculous...
1) Tina's attitude- Dr. Comair commented after surgery that "she is an amazing lady." Those of you who know Tina are not surprised by this...she is an amazing example of Jesus :)
2) Dr. Comair said that all of the tumor was removed.
3) She wasn't able to move her left hand after surgery but after much effort was able to. She is having some difficulty now...but is still trying :)

Things to pray for:
1) Tina has had several new seizures after surgery. Dr. said this was not an unusual side effect after this operation and that she should be doing much better soon.
2) Tina is unable to move her left leg or foot. Dr said this was not an unusual side effect and that she should re-gain this within a week.

Overall yesterday was an exhausting and overwhelming day in many ways... But GOD. I wonder to myself..."How could anyone do this.... without GOD." We are still confident that God has Tina in the palm on His right hand and has already won this battle for us. God has given us His peace that she will fully recover. We are planning on going dancing this weekend :)

Tina and I rested today (Wednesday).... loving on each other and our God who brought us through this.

We thank you for your continued prayers and support. If you would like to visit please call Corie (713-775-3082) or Linda (713- 315-7761) 1ST before coming for a possible visit. They will arrange visits for Thursday or later depending on how Tina is doing.

We love you all,

Aaron, Tina, and Katie

p.s. Tina wanted me to ask all of you if you have anything that we can pray for you about to please share it with us (on the blog if you feel comfortable or with us via text).


  1. Hey Aaron and Tina,
    I was shocked (to say the least) to hear of your tumor. But, I am not shocked to see how you two are using even this to bless God! You inspire me to be better and do better! God gets the glory in all we do! Eric and I are praying for you guys and of course that smiling daughter of yours! I wish you peace and health! God bless!

  2. Tina, I am so glad that everything went well and that you are better. It doesn't surprise me at all that you were so brave and strong through it all. I pray that God keeps on healing you as you recover and gives Aaron the strength to take care of you as you need him to.

  3. WOW! is all I can think to say. What a glorious miricle you certainly did witness. You were in my prayer's since we learned of the tumor but especially on Tuesday. I am THRILLED to hear that you all came through with flying colors. My heart is full for all 3 of you. I think I may go dancing too, to celebrate the life God gives us!

  4. Tina, I am thinking of you often. When we discuss suffering and how important it is in our growth, I know we don't always think of it in this way. It is easy to say from the outside looking in that God has a plan, but if we don't beleive this, then we suffer in other way. What I know is that your faith and belief is just as important as great medical care. Be the always positive you and I will pray for you each day. Love, Melissa

  5. The Holy Spirit told me that healing scriptures from Dodie Osteen scripture list should be read out loud to Tina on an on-going basis. This reading of Gods Word will cause eventual complete healing and restoration of any damaged cells.
