Thank you to everyone who prayed! Bob has made it through surgery (5 hours) and was taken off the ventilator just a short while ago. He has at least a 2 month convalescence ahead of him.
The plan is still for Tom to head up Friday. He may stay for 3 weeks, using up the remainder of his vacation time, to help with the early stages of recovery.
I go up Sunday and must return the following Sunday. I hope your day has been well, Thanks for reading.
