Well yesterday was a long day for Christa and myself. We arrived at the hospital Thursday morning at 6:00. Christa was doing her best to cope with whatever the outcome of the surgery would be. Prior to being taken to the operation room, she predicted to one of the physicians they would not find any cancer. For days now Christa has mentioned to me that she did not feel like she had cancer anymore, so her prediction to the doctor was no surprise to me. My prayer has been that she would be healed, so I too hoped for the same. We have been praying for healing through the intercessio
The medical staff took Christa to the operating room and I sat and waited. The surgery lasted for nearly 5 hours. Finally one of the surgeons came out of the operating room and provided an update to me in the waiting room. He advised the following:
- They removed the area where the tumor and lymph nodes were located
took tissue samples from areas around the tumor
- All tests were negative, meaning they did not find the cancer!
sta received an illeostomy (a temporary colostomy), PRAISE GOD!!!!
We are very happy to receive the good news. We will know the lab results for the lymph nodes/tumor
This is wonderful news for Christa, her husband, and their three children. And I thought it was fitting to read this news report today of a possible miracle attributed to Pope John Paul II.
