One more day’s wait…

I just heard from UCLA that the Lymphangiogram will take place tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9am.  The rarity of this procedure is underscored by the effort it has taken to get doctors, techs, facilities and materials together.  Again, I am moved by the lengths to which people go for our son.  A few people with many important things to do have been doggedly persistent, and we are especially grateful to Dr. Mary Mazel and Dr. Robert Kelly, who spent a good bit of their weekend tracking things down by phone and e-mail.  Again, this is a diagnostic tool that may help the team locate the source of the lymphatic fluid that keeps coming into Rudy’s pleural cavity.  Of course, it may reveal nothing, but we would rather wait and have some information before another surgical procedure.

So, please pray for this procedure tomorrow; that it would give the team a clear picture of what’s going on with Rudy so that it can be quickly and easily addressed.

  5. I am praying right now for God’s hands to guide the doctors in this procedure. Go Rudy!! My devotional for today is: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

    Love, hugs and kisses!!


  6. At 8:30 a.m. this morning I noticed that the red sanctuary light in church was out, so I replaced the candle in it and, as I lit it, I said a prayer for Rudy’s test. So! The big red candle burning at church this week is for Rudy–and all of you.

  7. We’re praying this procedure will go VERY well, and that it will give some information on why Rudy has had all of this fluid in his chest. May you all sense God’s peace surrounding you as you wait….again!

    We love you, dear friends.

  8. My Prayer Group prayed for Rudy this morning. And I will continue to pray today, that this procedure FOUND the cause.
    Hugs to you.

  9. Tanna and I have been focused on this area, and will now be able to zero in on these two wonderful doctors/instruments of the LORD. Thank you LORD JESUS for Dr. Mary Mazel and Dr. Robert Kelly. Bless them in JESUS’ name!
