Update on Ruben

Posted by on October 10, 2013

Rueben_RochaThank you for your prayers for Ruben!  Since the last time I posted, he had been released from the hospital because the pain had diminished quite a bit and he seemed to be doing better.  However, the doctor in Santo Domingo still believed that surgery would be necessary to remove his pancreas.  His pain never diminished completely and his condition never was fully restored.  He actually has lost 60 lbs over the course of this whole ordeal.  He decided to get a second opinion and went to Quito to see a doctor there.  The doctor in Quito is giving him a much better prognosis, saying that he will need another checkup in one month and if his condition is not better at that time then he will need surgery but only surgery to remove liquid around his pancreas.  Again, thank you so, so much for all of your prayers for Ruben!  We’ll keep you updated in the meantime!
