Just a quick update on Michelle. I’ll try and add more info in the coming days.
She made it out of surgery successfully this evening. I’m with her now in the ICU.
We’re overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support across the country.
I spoke with the neurosurgeon after the surgery and he was more than happy with how it went. He believes he got 90-95% of the ENTIRE tumor. MRI tomorrow will confirm. He was extremely shocked that he was able to take out as much as he did. With all the prayers for God’s hand in the surgery going out, I wasn’t as surprised. Great Physician: 1, Earthly physician: 0
The operation took what seemed like forever, but was about 7 hours in total.
Her eye sight seems to be good. She can talk and move and says she’s hungry. We’re working on some ice chips but I’m sure we’ll graduate to jello here soon.
Prayer requests (if I could ask for more than we’ve already taken of your time with God):
– healing. This ones gonna be rough. Long surgery = long recovery with lots of pain management. Not fun seeing your bride suffer.
– protection. No physical setbacks during the recovery. she has a couple of important brain scans coming. That those would show no major concerns/issues.
– wisdom. Enough said
– long term. No offense to Hoag Hospital but we’d love to not see you for a long time.
Thank you all. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
Chad and Michelle
