Pray during Lisa's lung surgery!

Tomorrow morning (Thur.) Lisa will head up to the hospital for surgery on one of her lungs. They plan to do the surgery at 12:30 and expect it to last a few hours. They will try to remove the spots of cancer, and once they know the outcome of this surgery they will make plans for the other lung.

This is a big surgery for Lisa, please pray for the doctors doing the surgery as well as Lisa and her family. They have been told that there is more than 10 spots in her lungs now and that they seem to be growing, but they have also been told other things by other doctors. It is not always easy to understand everything that you are being told, anyway, in stressful times like these, but the differing opinions from the doctors is making it more stressful. We understand that there is no exact answer for some of the questions they have but pray that the team of doctors will be able to give the Harders a clearer picture of things.

They think that Lisa will be at the hospital for about 2 weeks, so I sure they would love to have visitors to pass the time. I will try to make a post when they are ready for visitors.

We will all be praying for you Lisa!



  1. My heart goes out to you all! My prayers are with you and Lisa. May God's grace sustain you!

  2. I'm very glad that the surgery went well! You are in my thoughts constantly!
