  1. Dave, am praying. Interesting thought today: The Lord went through huge sacrifice to give us today to live to His glory. I guess my little sacrifices are nothing in comparison. So may His will be done in and through me today as I love others by sacrificing for their success. Dave, you and Sheri have sacrificed much for us all and helped us see Christ’s sacrifice through your love. May His love still shine as you go through these decisions and procedures – and no radiation can ever burn that out of you!! You already ‘glow in the dark’ with His Love.


  2. I would like to know more about Dr. Oelschlager’s assessment. Why does removing this new nodule make a second surgery so much more risky than the initial esophagectomy ? It would seem the esophagectomy surgery would have been a much larger and more complicated surgery than removing a nodule from your throat. Does it have anything to do with the esophagectomy being a standardized and practiced procedure, where as this specific throat surgery would be more of a one time type procedure – just wondering.

    In any case – if the proton radiation approach is the most sensible and practical, with the best prediction of success – then, certainly that does seem the way to go.

    Either way, I will thinking about you and will be praying for your recovery.


  3. Dave,
    Roland and I are happy to hear that this proton radiation is a possible option for you. We know you are healthy otherwise, and this sounds like a good plan.
    Keeping you both in our prayers. All the best,
    Linda & Roland
