When surgery was over, Rod immediately asked Dr. Patel if Jesus was in the room. Dr. Patel replied that Jesus had been there but that he (Patel) had sent him away because he knew God wasn't ready for Rod yet!
Rod is 54 and was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. Surgery is scheduled for 8/11/2008 at 4 pm. Feel free to leave a comment for Rod on this site. CLICK ON THE PICTURE for a link to his description about his condition.
Rod didn't create this site for himself, by the way. His family members are getting so many notes about prayers and well-wishes for him that I thought having this site for people to share messages (or even funny stories about Rod) would be interesting. Sherry Rod's "elder" and wiser sister :) CLICK ON THE PICTURE OF ROD (above) to read his description about his brain cancer and what's ahead.
