We arrived at the hospital at 7:45 this morning (after sleeping at Carolyn's house in Layton last night). Matt's surgery was scheduled for 9:15. We got word shortly after sitting down in the pre-surgery waiting area that they were running a bit late. They finally came in to talke to us, and took him into the OR at about 10:30.
I wanted to thank everyone for putting Matthew on the Temple prayer rolls. I believe in the power of prayer. I know that special blessings come when individuals are prayed for in the Temple. I also believe that it really only takes one temple to receive those blessings! However, it gave Matthew so much comfort and strength when we looked over all the Temples prayer rolls that was on. He got teary when he realized how far reaching his support system really is. Thank you again for your support and love!
I will update again as we receive the telephone updates over the next several hours while he is in surgery!
