My brother's wife, Kari, is undergoing arterial bypass surgery this morning to correct the rare condition she has which makes her susceptible to strokes. It's a pretty serious surgery that could take between 6-8 hours minimum possibly 12 hours. Please offer a prayer for her, my brother, Brian, the surgeon and the medical staff caring for her and for the family who loves her. The recovery is going to be rough but hopefully worth it in the end.
Update: 1:08pm First bypass done. Starting on second.
Update: 3:30pm Finishing up now.
Update: 5pm She's out of OR and my brother is going to get to see her for a bit. An 8 hour surgery! Whew!
