Mike has decided to have the surgery and went for the pre-admissions physical and consultation this morning. He will be admitted to the hospital on Thursday.
Thank you so much for your prayers and good wishes. I know they are working. Two days ago it seemed impossible for Will and I to get the time off from work we needed to be with Mike. Suddenly out of the blue people we work with have needed to switch shifts for their own personal reasons and it's working out perfectly for us to have the time off we need.
Everything should be all set for Thursday now as long as we don't get too much snow. Will and I got married in a blizzard on Valentine's day. Every year since it has snowed on Valentine's day or we have piles of snow on the ground from snowstorms a few days priror to our anniversary. It looks like our biggest storm so far this year will be starting right around midnight tonight - right on cue for our 10th anniversary.
