A trying day

I have a little favor to ask from each of you today. Wherever you are in the world, what ever your beliefs are, can you pray for my family?

I've been dealing with something silently for the last few months. It's been known only by a select few people online: On May 10th ( also my 9 year anniversary ) I found out that my wife has colon cancer.

She has completed pre-op chemo and radiation. Tomorrow she goes to the hospital to have the tumor removed and the colon resectioned. She'll be in the hospital for about 6 days and then in a few weeks we'll start months of additional chemo treatments.

I am very sorry about the news, Chris. I wish & pray everything to go normal and the surgery to become successful, without a hitch. May God stay on your side.

Chris, I came across your blog post regarding your wife's cancer this morning. I will put you on my prayer list.

If you can, please keep us updated regarding her progress, so we can know how to pray for her and you.

God Bless
