Hello all,

At this very moment, my dad is in a hospital in Nebraska having a surgical procedure to hopefully save his legs. (Using a blood vessel from one, to save the other.) If there isn't enough viable vessel, he will most likely lose his leg. (Circulatory complications from lifelong diabetes.) Either triple or quadruple heart bypass surgery a few years ago has used much of whatever available material there might have been to work with, and the angio attempted two days ago was unsuccessful; the vein was too deteriorated.

On top of a very long list of other things going on with him and mommy dearest right now, (compulsive hoarding, a court hearing, and a notice to vacate their residence by 9-4-08) when it rains, it pours.

Any prayers you might be able to offer his way would be greatfully and humbly appreciated by yours truly.
