Home and Resting

We are thankful to say that Mark is home and resting well. He is very sore which is to be expected and will be for a couple of weeks.

The very good news is that this is behind us and now he can move toward complete recovery. Also, when they were doing the surgery they saw no signs of any cancer!

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers,


Deuteronomy 4:29

But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Februrary 10 - Surgery Over

Mark came through the surgery just fine and if all goes well he will be able to go home tomorrow. If not, we will be here until Friday but still much better than our two previous visits.

The doctor said everything looked good and at the point he was in he did not see any signs of new cancer for which we are very thankful!

Thanks for your prayers - we appreciate it so much!

February 8, 2010 Update

Wow! I can't believe that I haven't updated this blog in so long!

The past two months have been great! We have continued the therapies that we started in Arizona by doing some at home and some at our doctor in Roswell. Mark continues to get the high dose vitamin C IVs and the weekly vaccine shot that I told you about when we were in Arizona. Since his port was taken out in Arizona due to infection we can no longer do the IVs at home and so he goes into the doctor to have that administered. We thought this would be difficult due to the time and the cost but God has been so good and many have given to our medical fund for which we are eternally grateful! He also continues on the diet plan they laid out for him and daily taking many supplements to boost his immune system and fight off any more cancer cells that could be lingering.

We have been privileged to be able to share our testimony to several different groups and/or churches. God has been so good to us; how can we help but tell people of the miraculous healing that Mark was the recipient of? It still gives me chills every time I tell someone how God healed Mark and I am humbled by what God has done for us! When I hear Mark tell the story my heart feels like it will explode with gratefulness to God for the healing and for the love I have for Mark.

We have another small bump in the road. After given 100% clearance from the doctors to go back to normal activity (I tease Mark that the doctor is talking about the average person and not someone like Mark who is a tad more active than average!!!) he was feeling back to normal from all the surgeries when he jumped up to catch a ball over New Years break and felt something tear.

He has developed an abdominal hernia in the same place the first colon surgery took place. He will check into Kennestone this coming Wednesday, February 10, for surgery to repair the hernia. Unfortunately they will have to due this by incision due to the fact that there is so much scar tissue from the surgery. We don't know how long we will be there - it depends on how the surgery goes - we are hoping to get him home as soon as possible so he can recover there rather than the hospital.

Please pray for this surgery and for Mark's recovery. This is such a difficult area of the body to have cut open and recover from. Pray that he will be able to do much ministry work from the house over the next few weeks and that his body will recover faster than we thought possible!

I will update the blog after the surgery to let everyone know how it went.

Thanks for your prayers and your continued support!!

Much Love,
