"In those days Hezekiah became mortally ill. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him and said to him, "Thus says the Lord, ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.’" 2Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed to the Lord, saying, 3"Remember now, O Lord, I beseech Thee, how I have walked before Thee in truth and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in Thy sight." And Hezekiah wept bitterly. 4And it came about before Isaiah had gone out of the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him, saying, 5"Return and say to Hezekiah the leader of My people, ‘Thus says the Lord, the God of your father David, "I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the Lord. 6"And I will add fifteen years to your life, and I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for My own sake and for My servant David’s sake,"
And sooooo....Surgery is over. Layne did exceedingly well. They found the tumor, cut it out. Found the node next to it that was the one that make him stage IVa...it was hard as a rock, and the surgeon said "The radiation had done its job perfectly." He took all the nodes near that and under that. Then he went up to the chest and checked that. Took all the nodes there. He checked the liver and other organs, nothing. Checked the lungs--found an old nodule that gave us a cancer scare a few years ago, that had been followed for 2 years. Took that out--cancer free--it was scar tissue.
Layne did so well he is going to recovery then to a room on floor 7. Now that is awesome. Even more of a miracle, the surgery was exactly 6 hours. NEVER has Layne been on time for anything before. Until now. You know that is God working!
Thank you for all the prayers, please keep them up, and know that we feel them just like we can feel the Houston rain.
Praise the Lord. God is good. All the time.
Amen.

Layne had a little bump in the road today when his epidural moved a bit and quit working as well. However, the surgeon is still praising him as he is still walking, coughing, doing his breathing exercises. Right now, he is resting.

Thanks for all the support!!!!!

Betty,

I am so excited for you sounds like layne is moving along, him and Jeffs surgery took the same amount of hours, and the epidural well he will move and get along faster than if he had it, glad he is up and walking eating and breathing exercises, as you recall Jeff had a harder bout due to his lungs and them having to deflate one of them, that is where he had his problems, after we got that resolved he did great, I guess I didn't provide Big BOY Underwear for him in time, I am so happy and as Mumphy and I said the WAIT is worth it, We are going to have more survivors than patients, but of course we still have K-ANN's dad, Wilgoose, and Donna 70 still needing our help, so we still have lots out there, Please know we are here for you.

I guess my BIG GIRL PANTIES have really helped everyone get through surgery.

Take Care
Lori
