I enter hospital tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon for the first stage of surgery to deal with the staph infection in my knee. Antibiotics have dealt with it in my body, except for the infection that is sitting on the prosthesis and continuing to attack the knee. The knee replacement is removed and a temporary thing is fitted (soaked in antibiotics). Following numerous blood tests in 3-4 weeks time, it is removed and a new knee replacement is fitted.

I should be in hospital 6-7 days each time. The recuperation will take at least 3 months, but I am believing these 2 procedures should deal with the problem once and for all.

It is my heart’s desire that I may begin to go again to the nations especially S.E.Asia beginning May 2014.

May I ask you to make this a special matter of prayer not just the 2 stages of surgery but the recuperation period as well.

I thank you in advance for your prayer support. Please feel free to respond to my blogs and this latest update.  God bless you all.
