The following email was sent to me a couple of days ago:
I have a new update on Wayne. He and Glynn went to Dallas yesterday and this morning they had to be at the doctor’s by 7:00.
He had a nerve block done for his pain.
They did partial block instead of full block and said they prefer not to do total unless absolutely necessary. If this doesn’t take care of the pain they may have to do the complete but we are praying this will work for him. Glynn called me about 9:00 am and said she was headed out to get the car and bring it around for him. They advised them to not travel today so they will return home tomorrow. Praise God again and again, the doctor said he did see the cancer while in there and again it still looks the same, and just sitting there doing nothing!! Hope that things just gives up and dies from lack of love and affection!!! We still know how Great our God is and this is so Awesome. Once again Thank You, Thank You each and everyone for being in our lives and most of all for your love and prayers. You’re a great bunch of friends and family.
Wayne taught our Sunday School lesson yesterday. It is so wonderful to hear him teach. It seems to me that, even though he has always been a wonderful teacher of God’s word, now Wayne’s lessons have an added depth and dimension. The lenses of his spiritual eyes are tinted by the experience of God’s love and grace along the path of pancreatic cancer. In many ways he is not the same man that he was prior to his cancer diagnosis. He and Glynn have been so open with this crisis in their lives, allowing us to watch and learn as they go through the lows and highs of this illness.
On Thursday Wayne begins his second round of chemo. This time they will not have to travel to Dallas, but will be able to take the treatments in Midland which is much closer to home. We pray that the chemo will do its job and eradicate the cancer, restoring Wayne’s health and his future. Please continue to pray for both of them.
