Journal entry by Charlene Johnson

Mark had his surgery this morning. It took about 4 hours and they successfully removed the upper quadrant of his right lung. The doctor came out and showed us pictures of the removed section. Very unhealthy looking tissue so it is good that it is out now. The good news is that there is healthy lung on the right side, so he will probably be able to keep the remaining part of the right lung. Amen!!

When Mark got back to his room it was a little crazy, they were trying to get him settled and then he woke up. He was in a lot of pain and was quite scared. He is much more comfortable now and is eating ice chips.
