A conversation with Dad

I just got off the phone with Dad. He had surgery to remove his prostate because of cancer. He was actually dismissed from the hospital (Mayo Clinic) a day early because he was doing so well. He said he is not experiencing any pain, except for some minor soreness.

Mom, said that the associate doctor was bragging on how the main doctor was bragging on Dad. He seemed to indicate that the main doctor seldom bragged on any of his patients.

Dad said that he knows it wasn't luck or even the skill of the physician to make him well, but it was the prayers offered on his behalf. He said, "I give all of the credit to the Lord!"

They will fly back on Monday evening. Mom is a little concerned for the flight and I offered to drive up to get them if they want me to. Mom thinks it will be OK, but will keep my offer in mind.

Again, on behalf of Mom and Dad, I want to thank all of you who have prayed for my folks.

Thanks for the great update...I am thankful your dad is doing so well...and I'm thankful that once again, God showed His power to a hospital staff, and all who witnessed His power!
