Friends, thank you so much for all the prayers and well wishes. I cannot answer all of you individually, but you have blessed my heart, and I read all the comments to Larry, and it so encouraged him, too! My sweet Larry came through emergency exploratory surgery this afternoon. With all the consent forms the Drs. had him sign, we didn't know what was going to be the outcome.
It ended successfully, Praise God. He was bleeding internally. He has a bleeding ulcer in his stomach, that ate through the outer wall and caused poisoning in his abdomen much like a ruptured appendix. Thankfully, they mended the stomach, and did not need to remove anything else (partial colon, intestines being mentioned!)
Now, he's in ICU. Pray for healing, no infection, and that his congestion doesn't become pneumonia....
Psalm128:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him,
and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.
