Updated - Last Update for the Day

We are exhausted.  Dennis has talked with me and is doing well. He has a lot of pain but the medications are helping with that.  His speech is clear and most of his words are exactly what they should be.  He is responding to directions and moving all parts of his body as requested.

We will know much more after we get pathology reports in the coming days.  Please continue to pray that the Great Physician will touch his body and heal him completely.

Thank you to all of you that have prayed today.  We know the peace that can only come from this.  If you called and I didn't get back to you or emailed, please forgive me.  Know I am listening to messages and reading notes and drawing strength from them.  You are a blessing in our life.

I don't have the best cell coverage either so it makes talking hard and when I do talk on the phone, Dennis is disturbed so we are trying to keep it quiet for him.

Some of you have asked about Brooke.  She is doing well.  She understands a lot of what is going on and will most likely get up to see Daddy tomorrow.  My sister, Karen, is staying with her and keeping her schedule as normal as possible.

Keep praying.  The road ahead is unknown to us but known to our Lord.  We are choosing to live in trust and faith that He will continue to be walking with us as He already been.


  1. I can only imagine all you have been through today and since Friday, sleep well tonight! I am so happy to hear this great news. I was definitely stressing before you posted the Doctor's report and I knew Dennis was safely out of surgery. I feel confident now the MRI and other reports will be positive. Thank you so much Ellen for keeping us informed!

  2. Ellen - just want you to know that Linda & I are praying for the 3 of you. I know that your faith is carrying you thru this and I pray that the Lord's peace will surround you all and overwhelm you.

    Thanks for the updates.

    I did not find out about this until this morning when one of the people in our Bible study sent an email to the group.
