From Ginny Through Lisa

Dear Family and Friends,

Please pray that Joe's surgery today goes smoothly. I've copied an excerpt from Ginny's email to the family here. Love to all, Lisa

The timing for the surgery was today at 5:30am, which got moved to 10 am. No food from midnight on. Ugh. The duration depends on what they find. If the repair can be done from below, just under the brow, it will be 1.5 to 2.00 hours long. If brain or brain fluid has seeped into the opening, then the entrance has to be made from above, though the forehead, and the duration extends to as much as 5 hours. The latter will mean a much longer stay here too. I only have under clothes for 3 days so I am optimistic!! But Walmart is close too, if necessary. Joe really wants to make the XC meet Saturday. Now that is optimistic.

Love, Gin


  1. Joe's optimism is inspirational and contagious. Good luck today! We're all saying our prayers. Tell Joe, knowing how he's handled everything else, he probably will be at the meet!

  2. Hope everything goes well!! I'll keep you all in my prayers!!

  3. Praying for a successful surgery and speedy recovery

  4. Saying prayers for a successful surgery and quick recovery.
