We are so thankful to report that Dave came out of surgery tonight and all indications are that things went exceptionally well. I know he will be eager to write and thank you guys for your prayer an support as soon as the anesthesia wears off. We changed his password when he started threatening to live blog the procedure. We’ll make sure all the medication is out of his system before he gets his login back. 😉
Here’s a summary of the report from Jenni:
Dave got out of surgery about 6:10. They were able to do the laparoscopic procedure. They took out the mass and shaved a little off the kidney. They froze tissue around that, then tested – it was cancer free. The doctor said there was an excellent chance of a total cure!
Even bleeding was less than usual for this procedure. This is the best case scenario possible. Praise God!
Let’s rejoice together and keep praying for Dave as he recovers.
