Update from Mike's family:
Today Mike's doctors put in a "filter" (for those of you with medical background... an IVC Filter) in the abdomen to prevent the multiple clots in his legs from moving. Then he had a second procedure to remove fluid from the right lung (the lung affected by the tumor). The procedure is called thoracenthesis", and apparently involved insertion of a needle to draw out the fluid.
Mike came through both procedures and was tired but feeling okay mid-day.
Thank you to those who have checked back on Mike's status. Edie at Rich Gifts should have a prayer button to me later this evening or tomorrow. Feel free to come back to pick it up for your blog.
Blessings on your journey,
