Quick Update

I have use of a laptop here at the hospital now so while Jacob is watching a movie will post a quick update.

The 7 hour surgery went as well as expected yesterday. They had him fairly sedated last night due to leaving the breathing tube in, but he woke up every hour or so and needed to be sedated more and more throughout the night. We were all so happy to get that tube out of him this morning. He can now whisper (his throat is still dry and hurts from the tube) and is being so paitent...even when he is the one that is in pain. I slept with him this afternoon and we both took a nap. Pain management is going fairly well.

Please continue to keep him in your prayers, especially as he is recovering and as we await the news of the labs. It sounds like an agressive cancer and they did not get it all out of the lungs, but are hoping that it responds well to the chemo/radiation. It's one step in this journey done...now onto the healing part. I will update later when possible.


  1. Thankful the tube is out! I pray that God gives you a sense of peace to allow you to get rest tonight!

  2. Keeping your son and your family in my prayers!

  3. I'm so sorry, your whole family is in my prayers.

  4. May God strengthen you and give you a peace that will pass all understanding... My heart goes out to you and your family.

  5. Beth, it's Amy, your pen pal in Maine. I found your blog. Our hearts and prayers are with you all. May God comfort and strengthen you and your family during this trying time, and we pray for Gods comfort and healing on Jacob as well. Glad to hear he was up and that you were able to take a nap with him!

  6. Keeping all of you in my prayers.
