Janice Update 12.19.13

The appointment was a hard one as our two neurosurgeons showed us the image if the recurring tumor that was now filling much of Janice’s left temporal lobe. They were kind as well as truthful about both the options and the plan. 

As of now, the only option is surgery and that will tentatively be Friday, December 20 at Desert Springs Regional Medical Center.  It is in Palm Springs and the physicians will have a strong Neurosurgical team of 30 to assist in the post operative care which is as crucial as the surgery itself because of the position of the tumor.

We will go Wednesday to the Clinic. Janice will be admitted from there. The pre op details will occur Thursday. A pastor friend of Heather’s has found a small condo for her to stay in for a few days over the days before and after surgery. So we are grateful she is coming Monday to share the load with us.

There are so many specific things we have concerns about, too long to list. But The Lord knows them and as you lift us up in prayer to the Father, we are sure His Spirit intercedes for us according to His will.

Your prayers are our life line and we sense so often our own wordless groanings. Thank you for your faithful stewardship on our behalf.

Love in our Lord Jesus
Gary, Janice, Elizabeth
Morgan and Connor

    Praying for God’s perfect peace to surround the entire family. May you know His strong presence. May the surgeons and post-op staff have extraordinary skill, insight, and compassion as they care for Janice and interact with your family.
