The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. -Nahum 1:7

Daisy’s surgery to resect her third cancerous tumor in as many years is today at 10:30 a.m. PST in our hometown of Santa Barbara, CA. The tumor is sitting where her last two were and is the size of a golfball. It is apparently connected to the spleen and part of her bowel.

An important prayer request right now is that the surgeon is able to remove the whole tumor without having to take any of the spleen and/or bowel.

The bigger prayer is that the tumor would end up being non-cancerous—which would be a miracle. If it is cancerous we will pray for a favorable histology; which would mean it is not the worst and most aggressive and treatment-resistant sort of cancer.

Thank you for all your prayers and support. We love and value you all.
