Dave (Dad) has a huge mass that has been growing all around his insides, surrounding and smothering his organs, arteries and main valves to his heart, and it is continuing to grow. After the last 2 months of testing, the doctors and specialists at Minneapolis hospitals and at the Mayo in Rochester are baffled at what it is. If it is a cancer, they have not seen it before. But if it is left alone, the end result is the same.
On Friday, December 23rd, a team of specialists will do a very dangerous surgery to try and remove a big part of it. They will test it again immediately while he is open with the hope of discovering the type of cancer it is, either for treatment options or to remove as much as they can. The complexity of the surgery is immense, and there is also the concern that his heart might not be able to withstand the surgery.
We are confident in the authority we walk in, for we don't beg God on OUR behalf, but on behalf of the blood of Jesus Christ, that bought US authority over all sickness and death. We are already thanking God that He gives His favor that Dad walks in, His wisdom to all doctors and nurses that will be working on him and caring for him, and His angels charge over him. Thank you all in advance for all the prayer, love and support that will come.
