My beautiful wife, Claire, is scheduled to undergo major surgery and we are positive that this will remove the cancer that has been detected recently. We know that both thinking positively about this procedure and that the many prayers being offered up on her bahalf will make all the difference.
Peter, I'll be thinking positive thoughts about your wife's surgery right along with you. Best wishes and prayers for a successful surgery and total elimination of the cancer. I wish her an easy surgery and speedy recovery.
Please keep us posted about her progress. I look forward to hearing about your next cruise booking!
Peter, my prayers for you and Claire! If she needs anyone to talk to, please let her know she can always contact me. I'm just one of thousands that have survived, praise the Lord, but am more than happy to help if I can.
Thank you all and Penny for sharing that with me; so happy to know that you are doing well.
Claire's surgery yesterday lasted 5 hours and so far we are getting positive feed back from the surgeon. His comment was "standard uneventful surgery" and did not see lymph nodes in the area that were suspicious. He said that she did well with the surgery and in the recovery unit. Moved to ICU for yesterday and hopefully will be moved to surgical ward tomorrow if all continues as is. We are hopeful that cancer was contained in the kidney and eureter that was removed and proceeding along those lines. Seems that her functions are working well at this point.
Prayers from the many friends and family have been so appreciated.
As far as next cruise; we are talking with family about a possible cruise in spring of 2013. Seems a long way out but it will give us something to look forward to.
Again, thank you all so much for being there.
