Thanks for posting Mags,
My prayers are with them all. My thoughts are that he must be very sure of his decision and perhaps the The Good Lord is surrounding him with peace.

I have been checking if there was anything. Steve is constant on my mind, what a courageous man and so sure of his decision. My thoughts are also with his family.
May God guide the surgeons hands and bring peace to his family.

Thank you, Mags, for sharing updates with us. Steve has been on my mind all day, too. It is amazing how close this 'forum family' can feel to one another. Tomorrow will be a long day for his family. Prayers for Steve, his loved ones, and his medical team.

So very glad to hear that the lymph nodes are clear. That was the last hurdle for the go-ahead.

By now it is almost 3 pm London time. Praying all is going smoothly.

possibly a 3 day surgery? If I remember correctly, Steve mentioned this could take awhile depending on what they find, and decisions they make as they go. Do I remember that right?

However long it takes, I'm pulling for him. What a guy.

I guess I must have misunderstood. I thought the plan was for him to remain asleep for several days until all the surgery was complete. Hopefully, things are going even better than expected.

I tried to post earlier about the time steved was going into sx, but it was storming and the internet was not cooperating...he has been on my mind all day. The good news was great to hear. Robert and I continue to pray
