Dan in Surgery Now

February 14, 2009 at 12:34 am Leave a comment

Just a quick note – The hospital chaplain came by, led us in singing songs of worship, and then prayed over Dan.  They came for Dan while we were praying.  Dan has been in surgery for one hour now.  First, Dr. O’Donnell removed the Wound Vac huge sponge filling the opening made in Dan’s pelvis and leg Monday when the softball size sarcoma was removed.  Next the Radiologist took over for about 45 minutes while he used direct radiation on the 3 spots in a major artery where microscopic sarcoma cells are.

Hopefully, the Plastic Surgery Team is working on Dan now to take a flap of tissue from the torso below Dan’s lower left rib area.  One end of  the tissue and muscle will stay attached to the body.  Somehow, the doctors will turn this and use it as a flap to protect certain organs and glands in Dan’s pelvis as well as cover the opening made last Monday.  Are you following this?

At this point, our friends from all over the world are praying for Dan’s safety and healing, and for God to guide and bless the entire medical crew.  Living one moment at a time, trusting in Jesus to bring our needs before Our Father, we are safe. God says  to His Redeemed People, “The ransomed of the Lord will return.  They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.  I, even I, am he who comforts you . . . For I am the Lord your God who churns up the sea so that its waves roar–the Lord Almighty is his name.  I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand–I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people (Isaiah 52:11,12,15,16-NIV).” —  Anne and Dan
