Tomorrow is going to be a stressful day for the Cobb Six.
Deserae, our youngest (she’s 12), will be undergoing spinal fusion surgery Wednesday morning, starting around 7:30. They will be screwing metal rods to her spine in order to correct a potentially life-threatening case of scoliosis.
Desi (as we call her) is holding up as well as can be expected, though as it gets near, she is getting more and more nervous. The same thing is true for her parents.
If you subscribe to the Quarterly, you might remember a couple poems that Deserae wrote, which were published in the first issue. We are including that poem below. Please take the moment to read it, and then say a prayer for her.
God knows the difference between right and wrong,
We should live for Him, though our lives are long,
We’ve suffered here for many years,
Though Jesus went through more than tears,
They whipped Him and beat Him until He died,
Then they shoved a spear through His side,
But now He’s up on God’s right side,
Up in heaven so fair and bright,
Trust and obey, we can go too,
Lord I will live my life for you.
