First, thank you for all your love, support, kindnesses and prayers. You have touched us deeply.
Margaret’s surgery went as planned with no glitches or hitches. Margaret herself did fine. She got a little sick in the recovery room and had to remain there for quite a long time, but she was in her room by 7:00 pm or so. She is alert and talkative.
Unfortunately, the cancer was pretty much what Margaret and I were braced for. “Quite a bit” (doctor’s phrase) of cancer had invaded the lymph nodes on the affected (left) side. Honestly, we had hoped for slightly better news, but knew this was probably the case. The cancer has not been “staged,” but at this point we do know that she is definitely going to receive chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
In other news – unimaginably, Katie Robb Davis (one of our associate pastors at Wellshire) went into early labor today and is in the same hospital! I won’t spoil her fun by sharing their news, but it was a very happy day for Bill and Katie!
God has a sense of humor!
