God Is Good!
UPDATE on "A" (04/14/2008):

"A" had his surgery this morning. On Sunday, I spoke with him. A little about life, a little about work, and a little about his unfaltering faith during all this. He was surrounded by family and getting ready to have a good ol' Texas Bar-B-Que. "A" has been a role model for me in my Christian walk. A man that is even tempered in his understanding of his role in God's plan, when dealing with customers and employees, and a man that looks to God for wisdom, not others.

"Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper." Psalm 1:1-3 (NKJV)

Our first update today was a little shaky. Upon surgery, the doctor realized that the tumor was a little deeper than expected. We were told that "A" may have a deficiency in the use of his left appendages for a short time, but with therapy, he should recover quickly. There was nothing to be alarmed about. Currently, he was doing well. Here is the exact update:

"'A' is out of surgery and all went well. The doctor is hopeful that they removed 100% of the tumor, but they can't tell at this time. The doctor feels he should have a full recovery. He is in the recovery room at this time and will spend the night in ICU. They anticipate moving him to a room tomorrow and begin physical therapy as well. 'D' [his wife] is there with [his] parents and 'B' [another family friend] said that she sounded as though she was holding up well."
Later in the afternoon, we received the following update:

"I just received a call from 'D' with another update. She said that they had allowed her in to see 'A' and that he was awake and alert. Although she said he was in some pain as you would expect, he was able to respond to the doctor and perform basic movements as well or better than the doctor had expected at this point. [GOD IS AWESOME!] He will stay in the ICU tonight and they still plan to transfer him to a regular room tomorrow. It sounds like things have gone very well so far."

Please continue with your prayers, as will I, as they biopsy the tumor and "A" gets back to 100% and has an opportunity to partake in all the other things that he loves.
