Topic: Surgery Tuesday!!!

We got the all clear for surgery yesterday! Keep us in your prayers!!

The doc said the tumor had grown some since June but that is expected, 3 to 6 nodes will be removed, he also said there was something around his aorta that they need to check out but he isn't too concerned. well should I be?? Other than that he feels like everything should go well. Gordon is doing good, gaining strength every day!

I am just trying to keep it together, get everything together for our 3 week or so stay, and drop off my 6 year old for a week sad But all for getting Gordon better!

Wow, that is great Heather. I am praying for God to come through the surgeon's hands and that all will go superbly. Hand on and Be strong.

Heather....fantastic.  Know that a tidal wave of good wishes, love and support is heading Gordon's way.  The fact that he is feeling well and gaining weight all make for a good combination for success.

Hi Heather,

Thanks for that and this is great news indeed that Gordon is able to have surgery! I know that you have a lot to organise right now, but stay strong and stay positive. Tons of positive thoughts are coming yours and Gordon's way, and please remember to keep us updated on how everything goes, good luck with the surgery.

My best to you both,
