“Think about Jesus’ example.

He held on while wicked people were doing evil things to him.

So do not get tired and stop trying.” 

~Hebrews 12:3 NCV~



Update on Eric Lee

Thank you all for your prayers, calls, love and support. Dads surgery was this morning. The surgeon said it was a very straight forward surgery. Everything went well. He is not sure if the tumor was cancerous or not. It will take two days for pathology to get results back to us. He said the tumor was not attached to any major blood vessels so there was minimal blood loss. Dad is awake and in his own room now. The surgeon said the next step is to get the pathology results and we will go from there. Overall, it was the best news we could’ve gotten!
