My dad received news that he is cancer free!!! The next step is to remove part of the esophagus tissue the cancer was affecting. The surgery is scheduled on May 16 and from what I've read, it is a six-hour procedure with a week stay at the hospital.
My mother asks for several prayer requests. Here they are:
- That my dad will gain weight. He is eating, plus supplementing with tube feedings, but the scale is not showing any gain.
- That he will sleep longer at night and that his sleep schedule is more regulated.
- My dad needs to gain strength before his surgery date.
- Most of all, that he is cancer free for life!!!
Until then, my family is standing on God's promises!
