Post Surgery (02/08/2014 Update)

Well I’m typing in this update from my I Phone. The surgery was a success. The doctor told me he looked all through my abdomen and did an ultrasound of the liver. Only the single tumor was found and removed. No need to remove my gallbladder either.

Once again the epidural is working some magic — no pain. I have been extremely tired and still haven’t walked yet. I did get up and out of bed for a bit. And that felt good to do.

My wife Connie and brother George went to eat lunch so I thought I would use this quiet time to post this quick update.

Thank you all for the power prayers and positive energy. Please keep the prayer power flowing, it truly does make a difference.

I really want them to remove the drain from my stomach. It is very uncomfortable and it’s hurting my throat but I know they will do what’s best.

All the nurses and aids are awesome and we are being treated very nicely. And I think I received a frequent flyer perk – I’m in my own room.

God bless you all.

Your brother in Christ.

    I am also glad to have all the prayers and positive energy that flows out for you. We now pray that this is the last surgery and that those pesky cells have vacated the premises for good! I am hoping the pain stays away and the healing is quick and complete. There are many adventures we need to explore! Love Mary

    Hoooray!!!! Glad you are on the healing side of this surgery! I hope things go quickly, unless the Michigan football or basketball teams plan a visit. Then I hope you fake needing a few more days to meet them 🙂
    Love to you all
