My brother will be going into surgery tomorrow. The doctor intends to remove parts that were identified as "surplus to need". Or, in the words of Jethro Bodine, "extree parts".
We were told he would be in surgery for about six hours, so it is pretty involved. Then he will have another two weeks after surgery while all the parts that passed through the Bass-o-matic can heal back together.
My niece put together a prayer schedule. We are slotted from 8PM until 9PM. There is already a full complement packing the waiting room so we will not be there.
Other than praying, I intend to spend the day doing the things my brother wishes he could be out doing on a cool, sunny March day.
Any and all prayers will be appreciated.
