Medy Cruz update
After a third operation, this time done at St. Luke's Medical Center, my wife Remedios "Medy" Cruz has been finally cured. She still has to worry about infection and biliary cirrhosis, but with proper care, she should fully recover in a month or so. The operation was another Roux-n-y, to repair the damage done by the first operation (a laparoscopic cholecystectomy that cut her main bile duct) and the second operation (a failed Roux-n-y). I thank all those that joined the prayer warriors. I thank all the saints in heaven that interceded for her. Most of all, I thank the Lord for giving her yet another lease on life. We all learned from this terrible experience - the doctors that they are not infallible but can do wonders, my friends that their prayers are effective, my family that we have many friends, myself that I am not alone in suffering and in joy. God bless everyone! Happy birthday, Jesus! I love you all!
