To our friends and family who have been praying for Mark's surgery today ... here are the words directly from our daughter, Cristy, shortly after her husband's surgery (as she shared on their CaringBridge site):
"The surgeon came out with good news at 3:10! He said everything went well...he believes he was able to get all of it and although the tumor did have the look of cancer, he did not see any signs of cancer anywhere else. PRAISE GOD!!! We just give him all the praise and glory for his healing and mercy and love!!"
You are invited to read more details on their CaringBridge site - click here. We thank God for caring for our dear family in TX today! They are praying for a good report with the pathology result on Friday, as well - thanks so much for continuing to pray for them as Mark recovers, and as they continue on the journey with their daughter needing a kidney transplant in the near future.
As I was reflecting on past times of trial, I was reminded of several other difficult times we have gone through in past Februarys ... and shared my thoughts in a post on my Pursuing Heart blog. You are invited to read it - click here ... or you can read the small print version (below) on the digital scrapbook page I made of the post, for our family album ...
