Surgery Update

Julian’s lung surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, May 23rd. He has to be there at 6 am, but not sure of the actual surgery time. Heart and lung doctors and consultants all say his heart is fine and his pulmonary fibrosis has not progressed in the last year and so far it looks like the cancer cells are limited to one spot in his right lung. All prayers for my husband, Julian, greatly appreciated.

  1. Sending thoughts and prayers for your both!


  2. Sending Reiki and positive thoughts.


    • Julian is doing work on a Catholic and a Menonite Church. He went to see the priest who is from India to tell him
      he was going to be delayed on the project since he is having surgery. The priest asked if he could pray for him and
      Julian said, “Sure.” And the priest put his hands on Julian’s head and prayed. When my mother was dying and was fighting
      to breathe and getting terribly distraught, I held her hands and prayed and felt something go from me to her and she became
      calm and able to breathe. She also seemed afraid to let go though she had been bedridden and mute from Alzheimer’s for several
      years. I prayed that God would send someone to her to help her not be afraid to die and she began looking just past the end of her bed with a quizzical look on her face. There was nothing there ,even on the wall, to see. But she continued staring for several moments and seemed much less afraid. She went into a coma and died quietly a few days later.

  6. Thought of your blog today – I will pray a memorare for your husband’s surgery and for your peace of mind tomorrow.


    • Meredith. Thank you so much. The memorare is a beautiful prayer. Our son Steve has been here since Saturday. He is wonderfully funny
      and fun. He worked for an airline and has taken us to Europe many times. Frankly, I figure we are too old to keep going. But he and Julian spent many hours the last two days planning a trip to Eastern Europe and maybe Paris. Whether it ever happens or not, Julian enjoyed it immensely. Thanking God for all my praying friends and my five supportive adult children.
