I am writing this with a grateful heart and thanking our Great Physican. Dean made it through the surgery and is doing well. It was a long 8 hour surgery and the doctor did have to remove the entire pancreas but he said he saw no evidence that the cancer has spread beyond the pancreas. He did remove some surrounding lymph nodes and they are being tested. We should have the results sometime next week. He will be in ICU for the next day or two. He will be in the hospital for approximately 7-10 days.
I want to thank all of you for your love, support and prayers. That is what has helped us get through this. For those of you who came and sat with us, thank you! It was very comforting to see how much Dean is loved.
When we first found out that Dean would be having surgery this week, he looked at me and said “Happy Anniversary”. (Friday we will celebrate our 28th anniversary.) I looked at him and told him that it will be the happiest when the doctor tells us that he will be ok. And guess what, this is the happiest anniversary that I have had so far! Thank you, Awesome God!!!
Please continue to pray for Dean as he recovers and pray that the lymph nodes are free of cancer.
I will keep you all updated!
GOD IS GOOD!!!
