Latest Update – Archbishop Duncan still in hospital and has had a second surgery

From the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh (via George Conger at Anglican Ink)

Dear Friends of the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh,

Please continue to pray for our Archbishop Robert Duncan. We received word from Nara this morning that he is to have a surgical procedure performed today at 6:00 p.m. Nairobi time ”“ which is 11:00 a.m. here in Pittsburgh (EST). It is hoped that this will enable him to be well enough to return home on Saturday. His Grace will remain recuperating in the hospital until then.

[Note: Abp. Duncan is suffering from an abscessed tooth and infection. He entered the hospital in Nairobi on Tuesday morning to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment.]

    While there are no doubt fine hospitals there, my initial reaction to the news that he was going to visit the hospital after the service prompted a prayer. Perhaps I need to pray louder.

    An infected abscessed tooth is no small matter to be treated lightly, since it can be very dangerous, and if not treated properly, is potentially deadly. My prayers go out to Archbishop Duncan and his wife, Nara. I know he is truly in good hands.

    Ack — a speedy recovery to him! Never fun to be sick away from the familiarity, comfort, and relationships at home.
