My sister just called and said the surgery went well and my dad is in recovery. Before they removed the melanoma they injected the site to see if it has spread to his lymph nodes. We should have those results next week.
The surgeon came to talk to my mom after he was finished and told her that he did not see anything suspicious but we would need to wait and see. He also told her that he knew a lot of people were praying for my dad and that he was too! He told her God is sovereign and he has His hands on all of this. When my sister told me that I was just amazed. Not that doctors can't be Christians or believe in God but to come out and say that, it really comforted my mom and the rest of us to say the least. I've been in situations when doctors come to talk to you about a loved one (Ainsley and Bennett in particular) and I've never had a doctor say something like that so to me, that really means a lot.
My sister and I were worried that my mom would be at the hospital alone (we live no where near my parents) but we should have known they would have a whole crowd of people there supporting her and my dad. Thanks to all those that came today, my parents are so blessed to have such wonderful people in their lives.
Thank you so much for your prayers. It means a lot to us as we don't take melanoma lightly in our family and no cancer should be taken lightly. I will keep you posted in the next week what the outcome is.
Love you sooooo much dad!!!
