A Great Blessing..




Back in 2007 Mark was contenplating on having the Gastric Bypass done.. He had mixed feelings about it and was a little scared of all the possiblities that could happen during surgery.. Then it was the financial part of the deal.. Our insurance would only cover so much so thanks to the help/blessing of his parents they helped in that department.. in October of 2007 Mark had his surgery done.. I was 5 months pregnant and a mess but Melanie (Mark's sister was there to help me through it after is surgery ended up taking over 2 1/2 hours.) When mark finally came out of it he was so sore and in a lot of pain.. At that point he did'nt quite know if he had made the right choice... Tonight Elton and Mindy Tripp came over and we were looking at pictures on the computer. We had never realized that mark was as big and unhealthy as he was. Mark and I wanted to take A picture of him now and compare so here it is. We were just talking about what a blessing that was that mark was able to get that surgery. It has made him beccome active in life once again. He is now going to the gym 3 days a week and Cycles 3 days a week and is about to go on a 100 mile bike ride at the coast next month. He is such a wonderful man and im so lucky to have him..And knowing now that he is healthy and will be around for Wesley and I for a long long time is such a blessing in it's self. Its just such a Great blessing that this has taken place for our family.. Thank you Bob and Becky for helping this be possible.
