[Members of the Tradition Anglican ping list will know that I occasionally post material from the Rev. Dr. Toon. Last Sunday a parishioner brought in a printout of an e-mail from the "Apostacy" e-mail list, to which I do not belong, conveying a prayer request from the Rev. Dr. Toon for a cancer surgery he was to undergo Tuesday. As you can see below the surgery itself went well enough, but please pray for a cure. --sionnsar]

Report from Peter Toon November 23rd 2005

Thanks for your best wishes and prayers for my bracytherapy.

I am now back home drinking gallons of water and putting ice-packs on the bruised parts of my body where the long needles went in to deliver 125 seeds.

Naturally I feel tired but the professor told me that they managed to get the seeds where they wanted them and they counted it a success. These expensive little seeds begin immediately to release their energy but one really feels it in several weeks time and the life of these seeds is about 6 months.

I have been given a Letter to present at the security at airports etc to explain why I set off the alarms.

THANKSGIVING, USA style, tomorrow, will not be for me a time of special eating but eating a little and drinking a lot of water – not wine!

I have two ladies to look after me and drive me where I need to go, like to the Library for a few books!

Again thanks for your interest and your prayers

The Rev'd Dr. Peter Toon MA., D.Phil (Oxford)

O holy Father, heavenly Physician of our souls and bodies, who hast sent thine Only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to heal all our ailments and deliver us from death: do thou visit and heal thy servant, the presbyter Peter, granting him release from pain and restoration to health and vigor, that he may give thanks unto thee and bless thy holy Name, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
