Sept. 17 8:45 AM

Good Mornng dear friends.  I am headed over to see Micah and see what the doctors have to say on their rounds.  My mom is with him right now.  One thing that is probably going to be done today is removal of a tooth from his esophagus.  During the storms everything gets so tense and heart rate and BP would soar and the teeth would clench so badly that he was starting to damage them.  We first noticed it when he had made one of his front bottom teeth so loose that it was bleeding.  Since that time we have had to keep a bite block in his mouth to protect his teeth and it has also allowed his lips to heal more quickly.  His skin did not handle the air tube well and he had sores all over the inside and outside.  What was found yesterday is that prior to the bite block he obviously dislodged a tooth further back in his mouth and swallowed it.  It showed on the x-rays so the plan is to sedate him and put a probe down that has a suction tip and get it out that way.  I can't imagine what it must feel like to have a tooth caught in your throat!  I will try to get back on this afternoon and let you know how it went.  Again, thank you so much for all your prayers and support.  I'll share more this afternoon.
Love & blessings to each!

  1. Thomas and Tina,

    I read this verse this morning and wanted to share it with you. I love you both and am still praying and praising God for Micah.

    Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord...Psalm 27:14 Amp

  2. O praise the LORD all you hosts in heaven,
    and every creature on the earth,
    For He holds our days in His hands,
    Shelters His children under His wing,
    and returns our songs back into our own ears!

    Our Father, we are comforted by the certainty
    that You hold Micah close to your own heart
    right this moment. We are stymied when we cannot see the Micah we know! A fearful instant crosses our minds when we picture him wandering and confused -- but that is not the case. We see his body struggling, but his spirit is secure with his Lord, the very Creator of all heaven and earth. Blessed are You, Adonai, our God.

  3. Thomas & Tina.... Repeatedly throughout the day yesterday I stopped by my keyboard and played and sang "The desert Song" by Hillsong United. As I did I knew that I was intercedeing for y'all in a different way that I have been over this time period. One line in the song says."This is my prayer in the battle, when triumph is still on it's way..." Just felt like I needed to share this with you. Here's the you tube link if you want to listen to it.

  4. I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their
    needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!
    --Isaiah 65:24

  6. Tina, I fully believe that Jesus is protecting him from all pain. His body is going through enormous trials but I know Jesus takes the pain. Love & Prayers, Tina Flowers
