pawpaw update

My grandfather’s surgery went well this past Sunday morning.

pawpaw, nana, & abbey smile for the camera

They ended up doing a laproscopic appendectomy in which they punched three small holes in his abdomen, inserted a camera and the necessary surgical tools, and removed the appendix . . . all within 45 minutes.

He is recovering well, though there were some unexpected complications that are best left undisclosed.

The good news is that the surgery went well and Pawpaw was discharged from the hospital this morning.

The bad news is that he is about 5 hours from home and will have to ride in a car for 5 hours, only a couple days after pretty serious surgery.

. . . . . . .

Please pray for the car ride and for the complications hinted at above to go away.

Thanks friends.

You can be expecting photo and video of our trip to Kingwood in the days to come . . . of special interest is Beth’s reaction to a massive Texas cockroach – caught on tape.
