COLUMBIA, Tenn. (BNc) — We have heard from William Woodson’s family concerning his condition after surgery. The oncologist told the family last night, Aug. 25, that there was cancer in eight of the 32 lymph nodes removed during Woodson’s surgery on Friday, Aug. 20. However, they were told this morning that all the cancer had been removed and that chemotherapy would probably not be necessary.
Woodson had a bad night last night due to severe abdominal pain. So much so that X-rays were made and a strong sedative was given. No word yet from the X-rays, but he will not wake from the sedative until sometime this afternoon.
Woodson’s wife Jeanne put a no visitor sign on the door so they both could sleep. I would also recommend no calls until later today. We ask that you continue to pray for William and Jeanne and their family.
Woodson was to speak at this year’s Polishing the Pulpit workshop, where he was to be honored with the Lifetime Service Award.
