surgery day

Wendy went in for surgery at 7:30 am today. Surgery is projected to be over by 1:30 pm. The nurse just gave the family the first update. She wasn't opened up until about 8:45 am. So far so good. Next update will be given to the family around noon.

  • The surgeon, anesthesiologists, and other specialists are clear minded, calm, and successful.
  • Wendy's body is physically strong.
  • ALL tumors are removed. Her left lung does a good job working solo. Her heart isn't affected by the tumor when it is removed. Her liver is healthy and responds well when the tumor is removed.
After Wendy got settled into her hospital room last night she read through the Bible. The following verses jumped out at her and brought great peace and comfort.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
