Praise God from whom all blessings flow. The surgery was a success and the surgeon was able to get all of the tumor that he could see. Now we will wait to see if the tumor is, indeed, Merkel Cell Carcinoma. The pathologist seemed to be pretty confident that it is, but we won't know for sure for a few days.
I couldn't leave you without pictures. :)
Here is a picture from this morning before Daddy went back for surgery.
And here's Aunt Meg hanging out with the girl. She has been an absolute angel all morning and afternoon even without a nap. Having plenty of sweet family and friends to dote on her helped tremendously. :)
Daddy is now in ICU for recovery, and doing well! We just got to go up and spend some time with him and he is awake, talking and drinking water. Praise the Lord for a day full of answered prayers! Thank you all so much for praying and for your encouraging words. It means more than you know.
