Day 2 Update 10/22/13

Mark finally got to his room yesterday around 5:30 – we are thrilled that we are in the blue tower – we are in room 102 and Mark is up for visitors – he has been up in the chair most of the day and has walked a couple of times already. He looks great I think.

The past few weeks he has experienced so much pain so surgery was indeed a relief. The surgeon came by to see him and was pleased with his progress. He told us he was shocked when they opened him up and saw his colon was obstructed and was about 3-4 times the normal size. No wonder he was in so much pain!! Praising the Lord that he had his surgery when he did – no telling what would have happened had we waited.

Had a pretty good night overall – he has an NG tube down his nose into his stomach to drain and so that bothers him when he swallows so that really hindered his sleep.

He can start on ice chips tomorrow – so and steady is how he has to take it.

Thank you for all the prayers and facebook posts and texts – they are very encouraging to us!

Continued prayer for the remaining cancer to be healed and for a quick recovery. That Jesus Christ would be glorified thru every aspect of our lives.

With much Love,

Mark and Lee
