    My son Chris is undergoing major surgery today to have a malignant neuroendocratic tumor removed from his pancreas. He can use all the prayers he can get.

    Thank you!

    I don't do prayers, but I can think of him and hope for the best possible outcome and that the tumour is isolated and hasn't been building up an army.

    Dear GOD please heal Chris as he is recovering from the surgery. We thanks You that by the stripes on Jesus' back Chris were healed. Thank You GOD for listening to our request and thank you that we can come to You. In Jesus Christ name Amen.

    Isaiah 41:13 NLT
    For I hold you by your right hand—
    I, the Lord your God.
    And I say to you,
    ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.

    Update - with photo (graphic)
    Thank you everyone for the prayers and well wishes. The power of prayer was evident.

    The surgery took longer than expected. The good news is, the tumor is out and there is no evidence of cancer on the margins. The surgeon had to do a little reconstructive surgery to attach his pancreas to his stomach so it can drain there. At the tail of the pancreas is a small duct that was too small for the doc to attach it to his intestine. One major hitch was the epidural they put in to get ahead of his pain as he came out of anesthesia didn't work and it didn't work for 3 hours. So, they removed it but were playing major catch-up to get back on top of his pain. When we finally left, they had him on three different types of pain meds, IV Tylenol, morphine, and Dilaudid - a hydromorphone supposed to be stronger than morphine. After another few hours, they seemed to have been able to find the right balance. Chris is strong and in good spirits and somewhat of a ham, as you can see from the pic below. Today, they are going to have him sit and walk as this will speed the healing process. God Bless you all!
