My Dad's getting the WHIPPLE SURGERY tomorrow! We just found out that they pushed it up a week. He'll go to the Huntsman Hospital tomorrow morning at 6:30 a.m. Surgery starts at 9:15 a.m. and will last anywhere from 5-10 hours. We will start providing regular updates tomorrow morning. He will be in the hospital for around 8 - 10 days after surgery.

This is it! Thank you for all of the support and prayers and good wishes on our behalf.

Just a quick HIGH 5 !! Maybe thats how I should identify myself from now on. I was glad to find you on tuesday at HCI and share experiences. I came home and told Jacob (who is 6 ft tall now and size 13 shoe) that I got to visit with you and he said he still wants to visit too.
About that 6 pack-- Jacob lifted up his shirt yesterday and said "look at my 6 pack" (6 ft, 130 lbs) response from Mom "looks like ribs to me" Sound familiar.
As a recovering Comrade, have you tried phenergan (promethazine) with that zofran? It can make all the difference when your in that pissy mood.
We will remember you in our petitions to the Lord. Laura L.
