Power of Prayer


They were able to go ahead with the surgery. The lymph nodes were benign. The surgeon had to remove both the right upper and right middle lung because the tumor was so large (6 cm). They say that the tumor had been growing for about 4 years. Thank God he came down with pneumonia last month, otherwise who knows how long he would have been undiagnosed. Other good news is that there were no signs that the cancer has spread. He will, however, have to undergo 3 rounds of chemotherapy because of the large size of the tumor, just to be on the safe side. The doctors say that he should be able to get back to playing golf and tennis in about 2 months. This truly is the best case scenario and an amazing tribute to the power of prayer. Thanks be to God!

Oh, Polly, I'm so glad to hear that everything went well! I've been wondering how the surgery went ever since I read your blog this morning.

That's amazing! And, today is Rosh Hoshanah (Jewish New Year), a time for rebirth and starting fresh, what a blessing!

Wonderful! I am so glad it went well, and that it was caught before things progressed too far.
