Steph and Scot had a good meeting with the surgeon today. She is scheduled for surgery at 11:30 tomorrow. They say it will be about a 2 hour surgery to remove all three masses. It is not known if the mass next to her kidney is attached or not. If it is, they will have to take the whole kidney which would take longer. She will be in the hospital for 4 to 5 days depending on what they find when they get in there. Tonight I will be starting a calendar for people who want to take meals to their house. If you are interested and haven't already done so you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will most likely be corresponding via e-mail because it is rare that I get to have a complete conversation with anyone between the hours of 8am and 9pm! We are all just overwhelmed at the response we are getting with people who are so willing to help out. It is a joy to bring up my e-mail and have 40 new e-mails all with the name "Stephanie" in the subject line!!! Tomorrow we will be meeting at 8:30 with Pastor Scott Watson and some members of the church for prayer before Steph goes to the hospital. If you have a few minutes between 8:30 and 9:00 send up a few prayers for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. Again, we can't even begin to thank everyone for your kind words and prayers.
