My Friend In Surgery

My friend and Vietnam Comrade, David, started his surgery about an hour ago. He does appreciate the attention of the prayer posse, as do I.

05/ 14 UPDATE

I saw Dave tonight; he says he expects to go home tomorrow, but he's in a lot of pain, and his body is still adjusting to the new, if temporary, regimen. He'd had a good day, then a long nap (medicated), then woke up in considerable pain.

This an Airborne Combat Veteran who was Evaced to Japan wounded; if he says "It hurts; I need something." they better give it to him, or I will be angry.

Civilians.

A special prayer for Kevin.

Holy Communion in the old style begins here in about a half hour -- David will be in the prayers, offered up by some extremely staunch Mothers-in-Zion.

Prayers again. Let us know when you know something.

David is out of surgery and is responding better than expected--very well indeed. Thank you all for your prayers and support; I will bring it to his attention when I visit, possibly tomorrow or over the weekend.

Thanks be to God!

Oops WHY did I call him Kevin???!!! My apologies. I will pray for him with the proper name, now. Glad David is out of surgery and doing well!
