    It has been a few months since I have posted. I have so much going on in my life right now I don't have a lot of free time. That's about to change.

    I was diagnosed with Cushing's Disease, a rare disorder caused by a tumor on the pituitary gland. This Wednesday at MD Anderson hospital in Houston, one of the finest surgeons in the world for this kind of surgery will attempt to remove the tumor.

    I would appreciate your prayers for the surgical team and my wife as she waits through the four-hour operation.

    I will be out of work about eight weeks and will take up to two years before I become "normal," if everything goes well.

    I will post an update as soon as I am capable later this week. I'll be in the hospital for at least a few days.

    No matter what happens, thanks to the goodness of God, there is a life in me that will not end.

    Thank you for your love and consideration.

    May the Lord be with you and give all the medical staff careful and wise hands.

    You may have a great physician to do this surgery but we know that the Great Physician is in charge. May He guide your doctor's mind and hands to treat you perfectly so that you will be well. ((HUGS))

    I am anxious to hear how this went. I'm glad you had such a good surgeon for the operation.

    It looks like the surgery was completely successful. I feel horrible, but that is to be expected for a while. There's a long road of recovery ahead.

    Thank you for your prayers. It was obvious to be that a great army of prayer warriors were interceding for me!

    I'm so glad it was successful and I pray that this adjustment will be better than the doctors say it will be. :)
