We were moved up in the schedule today and had surgery first thing this morning. We got a huge bunch of good news. When the doctor actually looked at his kidney, it was in much better shape than expected. This is strange because Chad and I actually looked at the images yesterday that showed his kidney as pretty bad off. We believe a miracle was perfomed and Clayton HAS BOTH KIDNEYS.
The doctor did a small repair to his kidney and finished the surgery about 10:30. We are told that perhaps by Wednesday he can start his chemo treatments. Clayton is in a lot of pain, which is heartbreaking for us, but he's able to sleep and we're so thankful for that. We are trusting God to keep that awful tumor dormant, and even bigger, we're asking his for TOTAL HEALING. We believe that God will continue to do a wonderful work in our son. In fact, we are trusting Him for it.
A huge ray of sunshine today was seeing my family. My girls drove down last night with my mom, dad, sister, niece, nephew, etc. and sat with us through the surgery, saw Clayton and visited over lunch. Amazing how precious it is to reunite with our kids. We missed Cort, but he's got a little surprise coming this afternoon. Dad is going to meet up with him for his baseball tournament since Clayton will be mostly sleeping today and tomorrow. Aunt Cookie, Kim... my sister, will be trading places with daddy overnight.

Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and He will direct your path"
Clayton is a CHILD OF GOD who is being held firmly in His arms. We are believing for Total healing of our son. Please continue to pray with us.
