The Update…

It has been a long time since I have written.  I have had a lot on my plate.

W (the Wife…) had brain surgery two weeks ago to remove the tumor.  They were able to get about half of it.  She will go into surgery again in about 2 weeks for them to attempt to get more.  We don’t know the pathology of the tumor yet, but we do know it was huge.

The tumor was 15cm x 6cm x 7cm.  That is huge.  It is a miracle that W is still alive.

The church has been great through it all.  They have overflowed with food and well wishes and prayer.  Just what they should.  We had an elders meeting last week and the elders offered to give me a month off of work with pay.  Nice.

I am not taking the time off exactly.  I am continuing to preach because it is what I love to do more than almost anything.  I have found that I love spending time with my wife more than anything.  I have been staying pretty close to the house to monitor W’s progress and help regulate the pain.  She is doing pretty well.

That is all for now.  Thanks for the prayers.
