Please pray for the fast recovery of Dr. Katherine Radcliffe. She had a surgery last Tuesday, January 16th to remove her thyroid gland and a parathyroid gland after discovering a large nodule and being diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism.
Katherine, along with her husband Dr. Ben Radcliffe and their children, are in the U.S. preparing to return to their missionary assignment at Kudjip Nazarene Hospital in Papua New Guinea. Pray also that their entry permits will be processed in time for them to depart Ohio on February 3rd.
Katherine posted an update on Instagram thanking her family, friends, including the surgeons, and everyone for the prayers, rest and healing.
Ben just piled all four kids in the car for a “quick” trip to Kroger. 😂 It’s been 72 hours since surgery and I think I’ve taken about 12 naps in that timeframe. I’ve never experienced fatigue quite like this, but I’m grateful for a husband and parents who have given me time and space to rest and heal. The kids have even been surprisingly accommodating (at times). And can you even believe my thyroid came out of that tiny incision? I have some gifted surgeons (and friends) to thank for that.
