Chris is Home! ... and Surgery is over!

First of all, thank you all for praying for Chris. It was and is truly appreciated.

And next (which should have been first) Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Everything went well this morning, no complications.

Chris is home from the hospital and is recovering well. The surgery went very smoothly and the surgeon said that the lymph node was easy to find and he successfully removed it. We received a preliminary pathology before we left the hospital. It looks as though Chris has sarcoid ... no cancer or any malignancy of any kind. So good news.

We should receive the full and final pathology report next week and we will let you know if there is any change in the diagnosis.

Thank you all for your prayers, they were and are greatly appreciated. I will provide a more detailed update later, but wanted to let everyone know that the surgery went well and the diagnosis is an answer to our prayers.

To our sovereign God who never leaves us or forsakes us, be all of the honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen

Dave

Tears of joy are flowing for the so-far good pathology report. I am praying that Chris gets a time to rest now.
