Surgery

Friday, December 19 @ 3:45 pm



That's the big day!
Hopefully an end to what has ended up being a crazy ride :)
We will drive down on 12/18, have pre-op the morning of surgery and surgery is scheduled to begin at 3:45 pm. I will be in the hospital through Sunday for sure and then as long as I am healing well, I will be allowed to go home.
They will take out a little less than 1/2 of my liver through a bikini hole and will use the other holes from gallbladder surgery for instruments, etc.
They are still very encouraged that things look good, that it is by their knowledge completely benign, but we will know more and get a 100% when they take it out.
Thank you for your prayers! I am nervous about being in Charleston, getting home, and everything being so close to Christmas.

Dawn, I have only met you once in person, and I am not sure that you remember me. Russ and I were friends in school.
I just want you to know that you have been an encouragement to me, seeing your faith through this trial. You have been and will continue to be in my prayers. I will be traveling that day, to SC from TX. I will pray for you as I drive, and look forward to good news! May the Lord bless and keep you!
