Update on my Hubby...

Hey guys, First of all thank you so much for all the prayers! I read each of your comments today on Kevin's Iphone in the hospital room. I am very touched and really appreciate you all thinking about us. After the doctor called the other night we were a little freaked out. The surgery he was scheduled for was not major, but just a little tricky. Then when he called so late at night to say they found the mass the size of a softball...well, you can probably imagine and maybe some of you know how we felt. I immediately thought that we needed all the prayers we could get! The good news is that they went ahead and did the surgery after looking at the ultra sound and finding out they were not related. The surgery went well! He came through just fine, he will be off work for a while, but all is well. Now...today he had an MRI so the doctors could get a better look at this "mass". By looking at the CT scan and ultra sound they think it could be a bundle of nerves with cells that have attached over years. They don't think it is malignant...and we are going to believe it is not either. Now we just need to pray that the MRI will show exactly what this is and that the doctors will know how to treat it. Hopefully we will know something soon. So for now Kevin is going to rest and heal from the recent surgery and I'm going to do my best to take care of him and go on with life as usual. We will deal with the other when we need to. We are choosing to think positive...it's all in God's hands. Thank you again, and please continue to pray.
Kristen

I'm glad they were able to perform the surgery after all and that it went well Kristen. I will continue to pray for a positive outcome on the other issue.

I hope you are feeling okay as well. I'm sure you so stressed and tired. Take care of yourself.

Many Blessings, ~Melissa

Absolutely ~ you concentrate on getting him well and recuperated from this surgery. And, Kristen, make sure you take care of yourself,too. It's so easy to forget that you need to sleep, eat, and take a quick breath every once in awhile.

Hi Kristen.... How wonderful that you were able to give us an update.

You've been on my mind all day and I kept thinking of Kevin with positive energy.

I'm so relieved and thrilled to hear today's news. Hoping that all comes out just the way you're hoping.

Remember while you're taking care of your dear Kevin to also take care of yourself...

If you find yourself getting overwhelmed - just look behind you and imagine we're ALL right there with you.... That should bring a smile to your face.

Keeping you all surrounded by good thoughts and prayers...
