Lab Tests Confirm Abner's Cancer Was Removed

After undergoing prostate cancer surgery on Monday, here's update on Abner's progress.

The good news is lab tests have come back negative, indicating that doctors were successful in removing all the cancer. So Abner will not need chemo or radiation, just a few more weeks of recovery time.

The bad news is he is in a lot of pain now that doctors are trying to wean him off the heavy pain medication given to him those first two days after surgery. That's when he sounded good and his hair still looked great.

Abner still sends his heart-felt thanks for your prayers and well wishes. When he's feeling better, we'll send a live truck to Abner's house so that you can hear from him yourself partly about the importance of finding prostate cancer early.
