Update on our church friend, Mike

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,

Hi Mary,

I'm still praying for Mike and holding him close in my mind and heart. When my mom was alive, she had a procedure done with the insertion of a needle into her back to withdraw fluid from her lungs. It's painful to go through. My heart and prayers go up to the heavenlies for Mike and his family.

Love you,

Love and hugs, andrea
