We are very grateful for all of the prayers on Sean's behalf. It seems like a small thing to have a 12-minute surgery, but it's hard when he is thousands of miles away. So thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who puts angels like Sister McClellan in our path to help us along the way . . .
Dear McEwan Family,
As I am sure you have been anxious I want to let you know he did great. I was going to let him email you also; however, he is still sleeping here in my guest room (sick bay) so I can monitor him closely. The surgery to remove the cyst only took 12 min. however he coming out of anesthesia made the surgery center visit about 2 hours post-op. He has pain medication available. He was given IV dose of Clindamycin.
He was calm and ready to get this done. His temporary companions gave him another blessing before going to the center. He will remain here until he feels well enough (recovered well). His companions will be coming over to stay the night with him.
The post op nurse didn't have the dimensions of the cyst removed; however she said they took a picture and sent the specimen to a lab for biopsy. I truly feel he will recover well, he has a F/U appt. with the surgeon next Friday, Aug 23rd, so he will remain here in Guam until the Dr. gives release. I know he has been anxious to get back to Chuuk; but understands the need to follow Dr. orders.
If you have any further questions please feel free to ask. Hope this relieves some concerns. I promise to take good care of him.
Sincerely, Sister McClellan
