August 11th (this Thursday) Shane will have his first surgery. (He is expected to have 2 total). His lymph nodes will be removed from his abdomen. After being on chemo, it causes his tissue to be really sticky and difficult to work with. The surgery will begin robotically, but Shane will most likely have to be cut. If he is cut open, his recovery is longer, more painful and there are more side effects with that go along with it. Our prayer is that it can be done robotically and that Shane has no complications.
Our friends Jessika and Steinar created a website so Shane is covered in prayer for 30 hours: before, during and after surgery. If you would like to be a part of that, please check out the website and sign-up=) www.prayerforshane.com
After he is recovered from this surgery, he will then have his 2nd (and last) surgery to remove the lump on his neck. That should happen sometime in September we would guess=)
Thank you again for your love and support!
