Think Good Thoughts!
My nephew is back in Toronto for yet another surgery. The poor kid has been through hell these past few years....hopefully the surgeons who are working with him now have the know how to fix him so he can live a normal life. He goes in at 9am tomorrow (its after midnight so today really) and the surgery is expected to last 3 hours. The last time it was a 4 hour surgery and it lasted 6 hours. My poor sister was going crazy waiting for someone to talk to her and tell her what was going on...turned out it was going better than planned so they kept going (embolizing veins). He ended up back in the hospital when he got back home and was laid up for a month because of some after effects of the surgery. He was only out of the hosptial a week when he had to go back in for chemo for the thyroid cancer. He is a trooper though and has an amazing sense of humor about it all. Gotta love him. If you pray, say an extra one tomorrow....if you dont pray, think good thoughts.
