Update as of 6:30

Hello friends,
After a long day of waiting, the surgeon just met with us. Stacy's masectomy went as well as it could, she is in reconstruction now and doing fine. She will then move to recovery and hopefully we will get to see her after recovery by about 8/9PM. The surgeon shared that upon looking at the breast and nodes, they appeared to the eye healthy. As they came back from pathology however, markers for cancer were shown in the nodes which lead her to continue on and remove all of the nodes on the right side. We will not have a full picture of the treatment ahead until the full pathology report comes back and meetings with the oncologists over the next few weeks.
Even though the news of some cancer in the nodes is not what we wanted to hear, we continue to just trust and know that our God is in control and knows every detail.
Please continue to pray for Stacy and Barclay. They thankfully just gave permission to Barclay to spend the night with her even though that is not normally allowed. We will pray for a quick recovery, no infection, wisdom for all of the doctors involved and for Stacy and Barclay, minimal pain and above all the peace that only our God can give...in the midst of beautiful circumstances, but miraculously in the pain and mystery as well.
We serve a beautiful God and know that His love is surrounding her. Thank you for your continued prayers and care and we will update tomorrow if there is anything else to share before Stacy can get back to the keyboard here. Most likely you will hear from her right away!
In His Love,
Beth and Heather (Stacy's sister)

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."
