Liam's Surgery Update #3
Thank-you Lord Jesus for today. My heart is overcome with gratitude. I have just come from ICU and seeing Liam. He is settled in quite nicely and is already off oxygen. He talked to us and has visited briefly with Grandma Cheryl, Grandpa Gerry, Uncle Brandon, Nathalie & Auntie Glenna. He is still very sleepy but he is looking good. The surgery itself went very well. Liam did not have to have any blood transfusions and he is already showing signs of strength in his left hand side. Dr. Singh was not able to get all of the tumour but they still feel that it is not cancerous. Liam will have another MRI tomorrow to help determine with the pathology report if more treatment will be required. Please continue to pray for Liam. We ask that you pray for a peaceful night for him, for the drain that they have placed in his brain to be able to be removed as soon as possible, for continued strengthening of his left hand side and for rest. There are three other children in the critical care unit with Liam. Pray for these little ones and their families. Pray that we would be able to shine the hope of Christ throughout our time with them. We will try to post again tomorrow.
