out of surgery!!!

so mark is out of surgery and should be on his way up the room any minute! man it is amazing how long a 1hr 20 min procedure feels like. it was harder then i thought watching the love of my life being wheeled in for surgery! i was so glad to see the doctor come out to talk to me in the waiting room.. everything went well, they got plenty of lymph nodes that were abnormal to study. that feels both good and bad.... there is always a piece of you that keep waiting for them to say that this was all a mistake and we can go home and resume normal life.
we are still very hopeful and and praying for quick results so we can get an idea of what is going on his poor body!
thank you all for your prayers and support they make us feel so loved.
if you are reading this feel free to leave a comment ....it is fun to see people from all over the united states praying for you and thinking of us!

Praying like crazy for your family. So sorry you have to go through all of this.

We're going through the breast cancer journey with my mom right now, and we went through Mike having cancer almost 9 years ago - so I know the anxiety you're feeling right now. Hang in there!

May God bless you with His peace and His grace right now. Trust Him. His ways aren't always our ways, but they are always working together for our good!

Prayers from Newaygo, MI! It's been a long time since the 4-H days of old, and we all have surely gone separate ways, but prayer is something you can do wherever you are!

Please know that Don and I are praying for you Mark!

In that case I'll leave a comment! :-) Just wanted to let you know I'm praying for you. Waiting for results is so hard and a verse I have pinned to my cubicle wall is "Be still and know that I am God" and I frequently read it and sing the chorus in my head!
