News From Emily

I apologize for the lack of update yesterday but there were some troubles with the hospital computers and Chris and Megan couldn't e-mail me. But it came through fine this morning. Some may ask "Why didn't they call?" Truthfully, I'm glad they feel they don't have to. I am so thankful that we have friends who we don't need to talk to...they have Faith that we are praying and we have Faith that they feel our prayers. They have Faith we are thinking about them, we have Faith they know this without doubt. They have Faith we love them. We have Faith they love us. They are being so bombarded right now, the last thing they need to worry about is making a whole bunch of phone calls. E-mail is a great thing in these situations. Thank-you so much for all the praying, please don't stop! Megan writes:

As most of you know the surgery went very well. They were able to remove the tumor in one piece and all the other organs looked good. We will have to wait about a week for the pathology reports. Emily was pretty uncomfortable today but she was resting well tonight. Emily will be in the hospital for at least 5 days, but more likely 7 days and we are 99% sure she will have to undergo chemo. The frequency and for how many months is still unknown. During her surgery on Wednesday she had a central line put in for her chemo. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us. Please continue to pray for Emily for a speedy recovery and for her pain as she has a very large incision across her abdomen. She is currently unable to eat or drink as it will make her vomit because her system is not yet ready to handle anything. We are hoping tomorrow she maybe able to start on a clear liquid diet, not sure though. Thank you for all your emails, Chris and I both have felt encouraged and it is a good feeling to know so many people are thinking of us and care about us.

Please pray specifically for Emily's comfort and recovery. Let's make chemo unnecessary. God can do it, we all know He can. Lord, heal Emily's body. Hear our prayers.

Glad to hear they removed the tumor successfully. I hope everything else continues to go smoothly. My prayers are with her and her family. I am awaiting the news to see if my grampa has cancer or not, hopefully we find out today.

PS. Im so glad you won the binding machine at the spring fling. You truly deserved it!
