Deeper into the Valley of Shadows

Well, I’ll get right to the bottom line…the cancer is too large and in a too difficult area to operate right now. The mass is 7.6 X 6 cm located in Dan’s right lower pelvis area beginning in the groin.  Chemotherapy and radiation will probably be used for 6 to 12 weeks.  If and when the mass is small enough to operate, Dan will have to have an oncologic surgeon – probably go to MD Anderson for surgery.  

The good news is that it is all in one piece, not in the bones, not anywhere else in his torso. We are waiting to hear from the Oncologist who is arranging for the chemo/radiation.

We don’t understand why this is happening, but we know we are in the hands of God.  He will use this somehow in a positive manner. Thank you for your prayers.  Please, continue praying for God to remove whatever is causing cancer in Dan’s body, and to shrink the tumor, even take it away completely without surgery…if it be His will.  God continues to surround us with His angels.  God is good. — Anne and Dan

    Dear Dan – You are in our prayers and we wish the very best for you. We know how you feel in not understanding why this is happening. I guess there are just some things that we are not supposed to understand. One wiser than us knows and I guess that is best in some cases. May our God bless you and your family with peace and comfort.
    In Christian love – Fern & Dale
