God of comfort

Rovar’s location in the surgical unit was unknown, but it was easy to find him by simply listening for the Korean music he listens to every day. Over the last few days, Rovar has been recovering from his left indirect revascularization surgery. It is encouraging to see him walking and talking, and finding comfort in his mother.

There was one moment, when Rovar was in pain, but he sought solace in his mother’s embrace. It reminded me of 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, which states: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” May we all seek solace in God our father, who is the God of all comfort.

There was a moment where he asked me to stroke his temple as he fell asleep. It was so heart-warming to see how much trust and comfort he found in his mother and I. As he fell asleep, I marveled at his beautiful face and the new surgical incisions on the left side of his head. Praise God for bringing him healing thus far.

Please continue to pray for Rovar as he continues to heal. In two weeks, he will have a follow-up appointment with his neurologist to determine his progress. Hopefully in one month he will have an indirect revascularization procedure–the same surgery he just received–on the right side of his head.
