But I’m asking you all to pray (or cross your fingers or think good thoughts) for my Dad. He’s going in for surgery tomorrow morning. It is a minor surgery which is low risk, but there is a certain degree of risk in the following days–I’m confident he will pull through it ok, but he can use all the good juju he can get. He’s had a hard few months, and I’m looking forward to seeing the spirit back in his eyes–after this surgery, and ultimately, after the liver transplant which is to come in the near future. So cross your fingers for Daddy, and for me.
