Andy's surgery

Hi, Everyone,

Andy came through his surgery well, despite an episode of tachycardia. Because of that, he is staying tonight, which is a good thing for him, in #209 Marburg. Probably, he will be discharged tomorrow morning, but we are not certain at this time. The tumor was large, so the incision had to be extended a few inches, but the doctor is satisfied that it went well. The results of the 2nd tumor marker, (blood work from Wednesday),will not be available until Monday, but that is not relevant just now anyway. In summary, he has about 5 weeks to recover before a decision is made as to the next step. Your prayers are greatly appreciated and are felt most strongly by all of us. Andy's friend Mei Ling Johnson and her father spent the day with us and Mei finally got to see him for a few minutes before they had to leave, which was good medicine.

What wonderful friends/family all of you are! You cannot imagine how effective your caring has been in our lives. It certainly is more healing than any drugs or treatments and more pleasant, as well. God bless all of you as you continue to keep Andy in your prayers. He is in good spirits and full of trust in God.
