UPDATE: Thank you all for your calls, emails and more importantly prayers!
The surgery went well and they removed a stone that was blocking a duct/tube from the gall bladder to his liver. There is infection so he's on some serious medication but they've also decided that tomorrow morning he will have his gall bladder out. My mom was able to change her ticket and flies in tomorrow. Your continued prayers are very much appreciated!

Hi my bloggin' family and friends. I debated about posting this but know that there truly is a power in PRAYER. I need your prayers right now for my dad. He is in emergency surgery as I write this. He left here last week and drove up to Memphis to visit my older sister and family. Yesterday he wasn't feeling very well and finally last night had my sister take him to the ER. They did many tests and have found that his spline is enlarged, he has many gall stones and this morning found that a stone blocking his liver. There is infection so they are unsure of how long the stone has been there. His blood pressure is dangerously low and they had to do surgery immediately. Prayers for my mom as well - she was to fly in Saturday to Atlanta and is now flying in tomorrow to Memphis to be with the love of her life. Thank you. It's in God's hands now.

Sandy, So glad to hear that he is going to go ahead and have his gall bladder out. I know from experience, as does Ashley, that gall bladder pain is some of the most intense pain you can experience. I continue to lift you and your family up in prayer asking God to guide the surgeon's hands, provide traveling mercies for your Mom and Peace for you and your sisters. Hang in there girl. Hugs ~ Kim
