Just wanted to give y'all a little update so you can get the prayers and good vibes going. I'm having surgery tomorrow morning (Sept 17th) at 6:30. I have two neuro surgeons working on me to remove a tumor that is wrapped 320 degrees around my spinal chord. The surgery should take about 5-7 hours and its a pretty big one. They're removing all of my t3 vertebrae and a lot of my t4 and t5, as well as putting a cage in, doing a rib ressection, putting screws/rods in, and doing a bone fusion from C7 to T6 using cadaver bones. Anyway, its a pretty crazy and scary surgery, but I have a lot of faith that life is going to be a lot better after this is all over. I'll be in the ICU for a day or two and then as long as there are no complications, I should get moved to a normal room. Just asking for lots of prayers! Thank you all for always being so wonderful to me! I'll try to update y'all when I'm feeling better.
