Surgery Day

Today is a day that we have been hoping would come, with a little nervousness and uncertainty.  But the Lord hears our prayers.  When my mother-in-law was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October, surgery was not possible until the tumor shrunk.  My mother in law endured four hard rounds of chemo and after having a scan in December it revealed that the tumor had shrunk significantly.  So here we are today.  Is is surgery day.  Time passes quickly when you are watching from the sidelines.  I know for her this has been a long, hard road.  For my father-in-law, my sister-in-law and my husband too.

We give praise to God that we are finally at this point, a point to have the tumor removed, and prayerfully move forward.  I ask that you continue to pray for my sweet mother in law, Suzanne.  She will be staying in the hospital for up to 14 days and then have a 4 month recovery.  Again, another long, hard road.

I have seen such strength in my mother in law.  When the kids see her and she smiles, I know she is not feeling well, but her smile shines through.  Its relief and comfort for us, and I hope good medicine for her. We love you Gran! We are praying you through this every step of the way!! Today we find JOY in the fact that we can come to our Heavenly Father in prayer for this situation!

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen"  Ephesians 3:20-21

Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Jeremiah 17:14
