Thanks for taking the time to check on Pastor Clark’s health. Here are a few updates:
Pastor Clark had an MRI on Monday of the new spot on the brain and is waiting for more conclusive information. While there is a possibility of it being another tumor, it is very small and it is in a location that is impossible to get to. While it is possible that it was the cause of the paralyzation experienced a few weeks ago, there is not conclusive evidence that it is the single cause.
What is conclusive is that 2 of the discs in Pastor Clark’s spine are ruptured and putting tremendous pressure on his spinal chord. This could also be the cause of the episode of paralyzation. Due to the tremendous pressure on the spinal chord, the doctors have suggested surgery ASAP to repair the discs before there is any permanent damage. That surgery is scheduled for this Friday, June 21.
Many people have asked how they can help during this time. These are the best way’s to support Pastor Clark and his family:
- Gift Cards – If you would like to send a gift card for meals, please mail them to PO Box 722764 Norman, OK 73070 or leave them with the receptionist at the Norman Campus.
- Words of Encouragement – please mail cards or notes to the address above, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or post here on Pastor Clark’s blog.
We will keep you posted, and at the latest, we will share an update after the surgery on Friday.
While all these things are beyond challenging, please know that there is nothing, at this point, that appears to be immediately life threatening. Pastor Clark is excited to have our pastors and his friends teaching on Heroes over the next few weeks, and as always, Pastor Clark is optimistic and ready to be back ASAP to continue to lead us into our destiny of seeing cities transformed one life at a time!
