Vicki posted the following post-op update on her blog, Windows To My Soul. We will continue to pray for a quick and complete recovery.
Lots of love from David and all the Pilgrim Pals
I'm home already! Laryngoscopy and surgery went well. Was loopy all day yesterday, and the kids laughed because (evidently) I'm quite funny while coming out of anesthesia. I'd rather be funny than nauseous, let me tell you. At this point I'm still a little hoarse from the surgery, but I think my voice is coming back.
So halleluiah...and thank you very much for praying! Not completely out of the woods yet. Waiting for the pathology report (15 % chance of malignancy), instructed to watch for symptoms of dangerously low calcium levels (tingling & numbness around lips, fingers, etc), and while I need to rest, I also need to walk and move about to avoid blood clots - always a post-op risk.
I know many of you are still praying, and I'm so grateful for you. For now, I'm wiped out. No sleep last night. But wonderful doctors, nurses, and patient techs. I'm in the cradle of God's loving watchcare, there's no doubt. Oh, the stories I long to tell! More soon from your recovering sister-in-the Lord.
