During surgery the doctors removed the lower lobe of Rayford’s right lung which contained the a malignant tumor. They also did many biopsies which have all been clear of cancer cells. At this point in time, Rayford will not need chemo or radiation! We are all thrilled and praising God for his goodness. I talked to Rayford a couple of days ago and he is slowing getting his strength back, and looking forward to resuming his previous busy lifestyle, serving the Lord as he loves to do. We are totally grateful for God’s care of Rayford.
The doctors are to be commended. They have wasted no time; let no grass grow. They have scheduled almost on a daily basis tests and procedures for Rayford. It seems that for so many patients getting these things done take months. Not in Rayford’s case. I think it has been about three weeks since his diagnosis and he had surgery today!
It appears that his lung caner is localized in the lower lobe of his right lung. The plan was open up Raford’s lung and check to see if the cancer had appeared to spread. If so, the doctors were going to remove the entire lung. If not, then they were just going to remove the lower lobe.
I understand that there was also a spot on the upper part of that lung that was of a concern. During surgery it was decided that the cancer was indeed contained in the lower lobe ,and so that was removed. Also when they went to check on the spot located in the upper lung area, they couldn’t find it!!! Thank you, Lord.
I think there is a possibility that Rayford will not even need chemo or radiation. Post surgery tests and procedures will indeed confirm that.
Thank you, Father, for your presence today with your servant, Raford. We praise you for taking care of him and taking away the extra cancerous concern. You alone are the Great Healer. Be with Rayford this evening. Keep him comfortable and give his wife comfort and rest. In the name of Jesus, amen.
