Please keep Eileen (Eak) in your prayers today. She will undergo surgery to remove her thyroid and the cancer around it sometime after noon EDT. The major concern is whether the cancer has spread. Her support team is in place, thank Godde.
Eileen asked me to update you on her surgery today. At 2 o'clock this afternoon, her surgeon reported that the surgery "went perfectly." The full pathology report will be available on Thursday, but his report today was very positive.
Eileen will spend the night in the hospital, and is expected to be discharged tomorrow morning. She plans to lay low for a few days, and will be in touch when she's feeling a little more like herself.
So, according to all reports, all is well. Thank you for thinking about her and praying for her ... it worked.
For Margaret and Joel who are true disciples ministering to the people on the poorest Native American reservation in the US. And especially for Margaret who has more funerals in a month than most priests have in several years. And thanks for allowing the children to call her Grandma. She is the best possible person/priest in her position. For Peg and Jim. For all those who believe that guns can solve our problems. For our dysfunctional Congress. For Christ Church Meadville. For R and D especially for R. For me. For Ward. For Bro John. For Jim, especially. For those in the church who are distressed. For A as she deals with dysfunction. For Ginny. For Amelia. For Julie Anne. For Danny. For Amy. For J's mom. For Art and Mary. For rain in California. For Jeri. For Caleb and those who research RA. For J and D. For Tim and Ruth. For Ted. For VC and N. For Lee. For S and P.
