Dad had surgery this morning. They had to blast some more kidney stones because the right kidney was completely blocked again. They put a stent in and if all goes well he can go home in the morning. He will have follow up tests ran but praise the Lord he made it through another surgery. Each surgery takes more out of him and they are all beginning to wear on him. He had a very hard time coming out of recovery. The mass/cyst he has will be dealt with later this week. Thank you so much for your continued prayers, they mean all the world to us at this time!

Dad had a rough time with the procedure yesterday. He was in intense pain and we ended up taking him to the ER this morning. He's been here all day. They are taking him by ambulance to another hospital and will do surgery tomorrow. They are putting in another stent and think that they punctured or perforated something when they sent the scope down his throat after the mass. They said the mass seems to be a cyst that is tucked behind his pancreas beside the kidney. They had to drain fluid from the cyst which is the size of orange. Please pray that whatever the problem, it's not too serious. He's very discouraged and really not excited about more surgery.
