For everyone who has been following my journey, this post is filled with pictures that tell the story of my 23 days in the hospital following my Pancreatectomy, Splenectomy and Islet Cell Transplant in November. During that time we witnessed God’s answers to the unceasing prayers of you the faithful warriors. We saw God’s miracles. I can’t thank you all enough for your loving prayers and support, especially my amazing church family at First Christian.
Although I am healing (Praise God), as of now I am still a very, very sick person living in a great deal of pain and expect to be for quite some time. I am eating again (tiny amounts) which is a blessing but it’s been an awful process trying to teach my body to eat and digest again. At nearly 5’8″ I only weigh 88 pounds (I was around 135 before getting sick in Oct. ’13)… this clearly demonstrates how serious and devastating this battle is and has been. Thankfully, we serve an Awesome God who can overcome ANYTHING and with the power of Christ living in me I know I will overcome this too!

If any of my doctors, nurses, aids, caretakers, etc. are reading this post I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am incredibly blessed to have had so many wonderful people working on me, helping me as well as my family, and truly caring for my well-being. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do!
**Please keep in mind that I wore the same outfits for multiple days when you are trying to figure out the timeline of events.

mallory, many prayers for you for healing and a fresh start in a fresh new year! My dad’s stomach was paralyzed after a surgery following a routine dilatation that went horribly wrong in 2007 or 8 (I am so bad with years!), and he was in the hospital for 40 days and lived for many months with both a G tube and a J tube. It was a long road to recovery but thankfully with medication he was able to recover and can now eat again and has (thank God) been healthy and of good spirits since. I share this because I know the road is rocky, and people can’t truly comprehend the devastation of not being able to eat unless you’ve traveled that road personally or with a loved one. You have a remarkable faith and spirit, and I think it shows in how you have carried yourself during these horrible circumstances. I pray that you are on the road to recovery and that 2015 brings you renewed health and an end to your hospital stays and surgerys. Loyally, Rebecca Sivori
Thnx for showing the real truth of your experience. It humbles me even further and reassures me of the depth of your faith on our Lord Jesus Christ.
