Just a brief update-
Adam’s surgery was successful. We arrived at the hospital at 5:30 am, he entered the OR at 7:45 am and was in recovery by 11:00 am. The surgeon was able to fully remove the tumor without any complication. Biopsies of the liver and the bone marrow were also successfully completed.
The anethesiologist was originally going to put an epidural in, for post-surgery pain management, but when they inserted the needle, there was a lot more bleeding than expected so they decided to use IV pain medication instead.
Adam has been in and out of sleep for the last few hours. He is not allowed to eat anything for at least the next 12 hours so that will be the biggest challenge for now – to keep him comfortable and not eating.
More updates later. THANK YOU ALL so much for praying for us this entire morning. The Lord surely supplied us during this time, and cared for Adam in the best possible way. ??? Below are photos from before and after surgery.
