wednesday morning very bright and early my dad is having spine surgery. the dr's are operating on the 5-7th vertebrae, which should hopefully give him feeling back in his legs and feet. we are all so hopefull :) they're doing the surgery from his right collar bone area, pushing his esophagus aside to get to his spine, which should help with the recovery time, but will cause some soreness. he should be home by the afternoon! please keep him in your prayers today, for safe dr's and a successful surgery (and of course, a quick recovery) -- i'll keep you all updated when i know something.
