Update on Emily
Late Tuesday I received an update from Chris and Megan. Emily goes in for surgery today at 11:30am. So things are still scary but going as well as can be expected. The doctors say that Emily is a textbook case for this condition and seem optimistic. We still need a lot of prayer here. My friends always tease me about my Google addiction...and as soon as I heard more details of Emily's condition I of course jumped on the computer. To learn more about what is affecting this little girl check this out. And this. This is a lot more technical but informative as well. Chris and Megan send a very heartfelt thank-you to all who are praying and have these specific prayer requests:
1. clean and complete removal of the tumor
2. wisdom for the surgeons
3. for God to allow them to see any other indications of tumors/ cancer elsewhere, (if there is any more), while they are in there during the surgery.
4. We need prayer for Emily's understanding, keeping her calm and trusting in what Mom and Dad are telling her, keeping her pain under control, no complications
5. peace for us during her surgery.
Thank-you to everyone for your help. It is so deeply appreciated. If you wish to leave a comment of your support and good wishes, I will be forwarding them on to the Thiele Family.
Please God, bless and keep them.
