I went under general for a removal of a basal cell carcinoma, which went deeper into my nose that thought. That operation was successful but resulted in no urine flow since last Thursday. I now am hooked to a catheter for the third time. The doctors had hoped that my body would kick start again but it hasn’t happened.

I went to a busy urologist today for a complete exam. Untrasound of kidneys, bladder etc all good. But the prostate is very enlarged. The surgeon wants to operate asap, this Friday. I will either be there overnight or for a few days, depending upon the results. I”m not looking forward to this at all but it is essential.

My medical insurance will cover part of the costs. Right now, it looks as if $1500. I don’t have a quotation yet from the hospitals but it will probably be double that. If an appeal can be put out to help, that would bridge the gap.

Sara will move in to care for me when I get out.

The container arrives in the next day or so and the stand-by team is ready. I don’t want to be in the hospital when it gets to the warehouse.

I’d appreciate your prayers and support but I am not the only one with medical concerns. Mark, how are you doing? He also needs our fervent prayers to our Father
