Bruce’s Story
This coming Thursday morning, Jan 24th, Bruce will go under surgery for removing a portion of a brain tumor that was found and diagnosed Jan 17th - Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)***.  While this is shocking news to our family we are thankful we know about it via unrelated symptoms that got Bruce in for an MRI which revealed the mass.

We covet your prayers for the surgery, our family, and then life now with this type of cancer.

*** Edit 1/24 6:55 PM - Possibly it is NOT GBM - pathology has yet to confirm (1 week from today).

Journal entry by Michael Drackley

If you are like me, Michael, you only hear what you understand. I guess last Tuesday is no exception.

We all heard "stage 2".

However, the "official" results are STILL not in. This past Friday other doctors on dad's medical case are weighing in and leaning more towards a stage 3.  Still others, stage 4.  So yes... much confusion.

It still doesn't stop us from praying.  God is not a god of confusion or disorder but of purpose, order,  and timing of all things. Through all things He glorifies himself. He is where our hope and trust is in all things.

As we "understand" things we'll continue to let you know.  Thank you for your continued prayers.
