More Prayers Needed

Prayer request needed:
More prayers needed for M! My cousin, M-20 years old, has been battling renal cell carcinoma for 6 years! He has his eighth (I think) major surgery on Monday. He is at the Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati, OH. It is a 12-14 hour surgery and they will be attempting to remove 3 tumors-one the size of a football. They might have to remove his colon, bladder, and prostate! I am praying they DO NOT have to! Last summer, they thought they might have to remove his colon, but prayers worked and they did not have to. I believe in the power of prayer!

For those that know what is going on….this is what has happened since my last prayer request. They visited the hospital in Cincinnati. He had to be put back in the hospital in Chattanooga for a few days for pain. He has a pain pump and they had to put a catheter in last week. My aunt has become an instant nurse-bless her. My aunt and uncle will be staying with him in OH for at least two weeks. My aunt sounds positive about this team of doctors and says that they are wonderful with reconstructive surgery if needed (prayers needed that he doesn’t need this). M’s girlfriend went too, but she will have to return sooner. M’s younger brother is in college in Chattanooga and will be staying home. M’s youngest brother is in high school and is staying with M’s girlfriend’s family! They are wonderful! Last summer was the longest recovery time for M-one week. This surgery will take at least 2 weeks recovery time! M has completed 2 years of college, but college will be put on hold this semester. I will hopefully update you sooner this time…after his surgery on Monday! Praying Now!!!
