From Jon

Hi friends,

Thanks so much for your expressions of care and intercession on our behalf. Someone must be praying while we are sleeping because we have been sleeping well.
Just a quick update on today then Amy will pick back up and fill in details.
This AM was a little tough emotionally, but God is great and His presence and care are great stabilizing anchors.
We were called at home w/ results from the blood work – everything looked great so the liver is safe. Once at the hospital the surgeon reviewed the biopsy w/ us and those results were negative so we get to keep the right side for now!
These were two exciting encouragements for which we praise the Lord. Pray that the lung x-rays and the pathology reports on the removed tumors will be as good – thanks.
Surgery went well – no complications and no premature contractions – so one hurdle is over. Amy is physically stable – pray for the rest and recovery. If all goes will we will be released in the morning.
Amy sends her love and gratitude to all – I do too.
I almost included a picture of Amy in her pre-op outfit w/ the little silver warming cap – but… well, we don’t want any other amputations so...
Talk to you all again soon, love, Jon
