We made it to our scheduled appointments at Emory today. The MRI went off without a hitch. Praise The Lord! We then met with the surgeon. He told us that there was no way they could operate since the cancer involved the bile ducts and was inside the liver. However, they do have a PROTOCOL that would involve a team of specialists agreeing to take Mike on as a patient, do chemo and radiation and then do a liver transplant. The surgeon seems to think this might be Mike's best option. He will present Mike's case on Friday. We should hear from him Friday or Monday at the latest. So our specific prayer requests are:
The bilirubin count continues to drop
The team approves Mike to be a patient
If he is approved, we need to pray the chemo and radiation work and he finds a viable liver.
That is a hard prayer to pray because it involves someone losing someone.
We just have to continue to trust God and know that He has Mike in His hands. Again we thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Until we have more news.
