Bryan's Surgery Date and update on Michael

Bryan's surgery date will be April 17 at 12:00.  Doctor says he hopes to be able to remove only part of the kidney. . but can't guarantee...Bryan will be in the hospital 6 days. Out of work 6 weeks. I appreciate your emails and checking in, and most certainly your prayers on our behalf.   I will try to keep everyone posted as soon as I am able to post updates.  Burden of school work, projects, etc. is also weighing heavy on my heart. . .so I'm not able to post as often as I'd like to. 

Also: Please pray for my cousin Michael and the family as well.  The recent update we received was not a good one.  The Dr's have found 15 new tumors in his liver.  This particular type of cancer is extremely rare, so there is very little research out there regarding treatment, etc. The DR's told them that it will "take him quickly." Please pray for their strength and comfort during this time.. and pray for God to do a miracle according to His will.  Thank you so much!!

the following is taken from "Jesus Calling," a devotional that was given to me for my birthday.
March 24:
"This is a time in your life when you must learn to let go: of loved ones, of possessions, of control.  In order to let go of something that is precious to you, you need to rest in My Presence, where you are complete. Take time to bask in the Light of My Love.  As you relax more and more, your grasping hand gradually opens up, releasing your prized possession into My care.
You can feel secure, even in the midst of cataclysmic changes, through awareness of my continual presence.  The One who never leaves you is the same One who never changes:I am the same yesterday, today and forever.  As you release more and more things into My care, remember that I never let go of your hand.  herein lies your security, which no one and no circumstance can take from you."
Psalm 89:15     Hebrews 13:8    Isaiah 41:13

  3. Tammi,

    I've been praying for your family and your cousin Michael. I will continue to pray for your husband and the upcoming surgery and weeks to follow. My heart goes out to Michael, he has been on my mind and I'm so sorry for what He and his family are experiencing, I cannot even think of the right words to say.

    I will email you friend,
    Sending you a hug with lots of love.
