I DON'T USUALLY ASK, BUT.....
« on: April 20, 2017, 07:02:32 AM »
Your thoughts and prayers would be much appreciated today!  As I write this, my only brother is going into the operating room for MAJOR spinal surgery.  He will be on the table for at least 6.5 hours.  It's going to be a LONG day for all of us.  :-\

I'm not asking for, or expecting written responses here, but just your good thoughts and a quick prayer for him is all I ask. 

THANK YOU ALL!

Done.  I hope everything turns out well.

I knew I could count on you guys for help.....THANK YOU ALL! :hail:    The good news is my brother came through the LOOOONG surgery alive and is doing pretty well!  He is very weak and beat up, still losing some blood and is retaining fluid in his system, but they are working to correct that.  They had him up sitting in a chair for a short time today and actually had him out of his room and walking a few steps with the aid of a walker and a couple of cute nurses......amazing! :shocked:
