Friends and Family,
I'm sorry for the delay in posting after surgery - I have had technical difficulties with Mark's laptop and had to get Cameron to bring me his.
The surgery went very well and I am just praising the Lord!
They started the surgery at 1:45 and it lasted just over 3 hours - I spoke with Dr. Elwood around 5:15 and he had all good news! The tumor on the right lobe was removed successfully with plenty of margins and the tumor on the left lobe was in a very good location so they didn't have to cut out as much of his liver as they thought which was good news and the great news was that they didn't see any new cancer!
He was in recovery for about 2 and a half hours while we waited for them to assign him a room. We finally got up here around 7:45 - we are in the green tower at Kennestone room 512 - right across the hall from where we were before - we've already had a couple of the nursing staff remember us from before.
We are currently in our private room and he is resting very well. He is on a lot of pain medication and feeling very well. He told everyone around here that it's our 25th anniversary and that he wanted to take me away to a place with a private room and 24 hour room service! What more could we ask for!
We thank you all for your prayers and love and support - we feel it and we appreciate it more than you could know!
I will post tomorrow and let you know how he's doing.
With much love and gratefulness,
Mark and Lee
I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make her boast in thee Lord the humble shall hear thereof and be glad.
Oh magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears.
