Amarilis – Continued

Thanks so much for your prayers for Amarilis. She was released from the hospital earlier than expected after a successful surgery.

The following details just became clear in the past couple days. The surgery was needed because while the doctors administered an epidural… damage was done to a vein in her back. It took three days for the doctors to realize this and when they discovered it they had to rush her in for emergency surgery. The surgery seems to have successfully repaired the vein and she should be fine in the next couple weeks.

But the extent and present state of the Uterine Cancer (Endometrial Cancer) is not known at this point. She goes for her final scheduled chemotherapy treatment in about a week and will go for tests following that to determine what the next steps should be.

The medical care she is receiving at the community hospital in Guatemala is very poor. Please continue to pray for her over the course of the next few weeks.

Thanks so much!
