An Update

Friends,
First, words cannot express my deep gratitude for the outpouring of prayers and well wishes which have been posted on my blog, via email or in person. I feel truly blessed by so many expressions of friendship. On a practical note they seem to have worked. The surgery went as well as can be expected. I am in great pain, which is to be expected but it seems to be diminishing a smidgen each day. Those awful tubes down the nose and throat and up more personal ares of the anatomy have been removed and I am being allowed to drink liquids and some very soft foods. All early tests show what is hoped for and the doctor is cautiously optimistic that I will be discharged from hospital either tonight or tomorrow.

That's about it for now. Blogging will be pretty slow for a while, but I wanted to get a note up.

Thank you all again and may God bless you as much as He has me.
