Thanks to ALL of you who offered financial support and prayers for Lee Pardee during his recent surgery. The surgeons successfully removed a large tumor that was near his carotid artery. I visited with Lee for a long time yesterday. He is in a nice hospital and is being very well cared for. We are also very thankful this hospital has agreed to provide free post-operative care for him. Lee has a very large incision from the tumor removal site, but there are no signs of infection.
When I walked in the room, he lifted himself up and started making happy sounds in spite of his autism and recent surgery! I am SO proud of the way he has responded and his cheery attitude. He is eating on his own. When I handed him a teddy bear, he hugged it closely! We hope he will be back to HaitiChildren Village in ten days. I learned that this little trooper had TWO heart attacks during the surgery and battled through it all!! The six doctors who performed the surgery ALL consider him to be a little miracle and a testament to your support and prayers!
Again, thank you for making a difference for Lee.
