Jonathan update

Jonathan's surgery went well. He is very coherent. He has recognized/named everyone who has been in the room, he even explained to me how to operate his phone. His memory is good.
God has been answering our prayers but not just that He has held our hand and comforted us this entire process. Seriously, JC HAS TAKEN OVER. He has taken away my what ifs. He has given me a peace that only he could give me- because brain surgery... on my 35 year old husband, father of our children, my best friend, my partner in crime and in life. God has taken away the fear and instead filled me with his warmth, love and peace. Seriously, My heart feels warm -Like from a big Jesus hug.
I have been in awe of Gods provision.
1. I asked for rest again for Jonathan. And people prayed for it and God has again granted him rest. He's slept from about ,10-2am. Off and on since then. ( he keeps waking up nd telling me he loves me and that I need to sleep. Which makes me swoon because yesterday he had a hard time remembering my name)
2. I've asked God for Jonathan's pain to get under control, people prayed and God has made sure that j was comfortable enough to sleep. The first few hrs after surgery he said his pain was at a 9 and 10. Now he hasn't complained.
3. I don't even know what's happening at home but I've prayed that my kids are being taken care of and that they are feeling loved. And guys they are. They've had grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends and their kids love on them. Aunt Delta leading the charge and im thankful for her. Delta and my friends even cleaned my bathroom and fridge and put away the mountain of laundry that I've been avoiding. I'd rather my friends saw me naked or knew my weight over seeing my mess. But Gods taken that care away too and honestly I'm thankful and grateful to have friends who just have taken over and taken care of things and it will be nice to come home to a clean house.
4. Which leads to a prayer I prayed when we first moved to Frisco. I had a 4 year old and a 12 week old and not a friend in Texas. I remember nursing henry and praying that God would give a friend. Just one. My expectations were low- they didn't even have to be a good friend just someone to talk to. And he led us to Stonebriar and then to the journey And he gave us not just one friend but a whole group who goes above and beyond and honestly they've been our family.
Praying.
Now, most specifically I am asking openly and boldly that this Tumor be benign. We find out the results by Tuesday.  Please pray with me that Tumor would be benign!!!
I'm done with my thoughts. Thank you for everyone who has prayed and continues to pray for Jonathan. God is moving mountains and I know that he is so much bigger than a little tumor. Jesus can fix it.
