Daniel's Recovery- Update 1

I know so many are waiting for the specifics and story of yesterday. I'm going to post about it as soon as possible. I'm holding off for a couple of reasons.
1. Because Daniel was "out" yesterday after surgery, I was the one who talked to the doctor, took all the info ect... There were a few things I didn't understand...not sure if it was for lack of Spanish or if they would have confused me in English as well (as it is all medical terminology). The doctor should be in to see Daniel sometime today and I'm waiting to hear what he says to Daniel since Daniel speaks Spanish much better than I do. Daniel may also have some questions for the doctor that I didn't think of, so when we report, we can do so as accurately as possible. But the doctor was very, very clear to me that it was not cancer and to expect a full recovery.
2. I am eager to share the story of yesterday...again the Lord worked out so clearly each and every little detail...but right now I feel tugged at many ends. I yearn to be with Daniel for his recovery, I have dearly missed my children, and I am excited to share here with all of those who prayed and cried so much along with us. I prayed yesterday night that the Lord would make His will clear in whether I should be with Daniel or here at home. Again, he showed me, without a doubt, that I am to be home today. So I'm back to the loving, kissing, hugging, playing, training, cleaning, washing, cooking ect... that I love to do for my hubby, children and most importantly the Lord.

I was able to talk on the phone with Daniel a couple times this morning and he sounded good...kind of like how I sound after a c-section. :) He has already been walking and even got a hot shower. He was rejoicing and reveling in the goodness and mercy of the Lord.

Last night when he came back into his room after surgery, at first he was very out of it. Then he began talking to me but only in Spanish (he never talks to me in Spanish unless we are with other Spanish speaking people). He wouldn't switch to English. :) I had to tell him that it wasn't cancer about 15 times :) He gradually became more and more coherent and told me that he was now understanding everything fine. So I asked him, "What's the capitol of New York?" And he halfway opened one eye and looked at me and said, "Jaynee, do I even know that when I'm not drugged up?" :)

Looking forward to sharing soon! All we can say is thank you Lord!


  1. Hi Jaynee!

    I must go to your blog every few hours to see if you have updated. Its not like you don't have lots to do with your family, huh? :) Thanks for being so transparent with your family, and typing this blog. This is a very special ministry you have to LOTS of people all over the world.

    We are so thankful to the LORD for no more "C" word!!! How grateful everyone is...what awesome answers to many, many prayers!

    You need to "test" Daniel with questions that he knows the answers too! :) That was cute! His answer!!

    Love 'n prayers,

  2. Albany, Daniel, Albany. Good thing Jaynee is homeschooling. =0)Thanks for the update.

  3. Dear Jaynee, Daniel & Children,

    What precious, gracious and joyous news!

    Do you have any idea how many people were brought to their knees and approached the throne of God on your behalf? How many will now go on with humble hearts, their faith and trust increased because of your trial?

    With our continuing prayers and love, all the many Scarrys are rejoicing with you today.

  4. Oh the joy of waking up from surgery! I hate those first 24hrs. after surgery when your body will not wake up but your mind wants to. You know when you can begin to laugh again that everything is getting back to normal. Praise God! Rest up before you get home to all that huggin'. But, I know you will have much help at home too! ;)

  5. Praising the Lord with you!

    Can't wait to hear more about the good news!

  7. Hi Jaynee and Family,
    Just checking back, so thankful to the Lord for his wonderful mercies!! I am so thankful that, Lord willing, you will even have a greater testimony to those around you, of God's hearing and answering prayer.May the people's lives that see you everyday be encouraged that HE is ALIVE and HE HEARS!!!
    Blessings of recovery to Daniel!!

  8. Our God is truly great! Still praying in Texas

  9. Yeah, yeah, yeah!!! Oh, Praise the LORD for this wonderful news!!! I am so happy that Daniel will have a full recovery! Thank you for keeping us updated!

  10. I only heard the news yesterday and must say I have been praying ever since. I am so amazed by your courage and strength in the Lord through all this. What great news posted today. I will still continue to pray for you and never stop. You are such an amazing blessing to so many. What an encouragement to us who you have so unselfishly shared your life with. The Lord is giving you this trial and without fear, you are facing it with all hope and courage through Jesus. How blessed are we to have so much strength behind us from Him. I want you to know that you are touching so many people for the Lord through your life and neverending commitment to reaching others for Jesus. May the Lord's will be done!! I can not put into words what the Lord shows me through your ministy. I receive your newsletters and am so excited to see what new and great things you are doing for the Lord. This trial in itself has made me rethink the time I have and what I need to do with it. May Jesus be praised and the Lord's plan be carried out in each of our lives. Your testimony is a reminder of the kind of faith we need to each have everyday of our lives and that our hope lies with Him, not here on this earth. I will be continually praying for you!! Loving you in Jesus, Your cousin, Laura Menefee (Lockwood)

  11. Jaynee and Daniel we only just heard today that Daniel was so sick. I know, I should check here more often, right? How wonderful to come to your page and find that God has already brought you through the troubled waters. We were all SO relieved to hear that it is not cancer. Can't wait to hear the wonderful story of God's grace and power. God is SO GOOD.

    Having gone through so many things myself, I know how sweet the relationship with God is when walking through these tough things in Him. I would not trade a minute of the tough times for the relationship I have with Him now because of them.

    Rejoicing with you!!

    In Him-
