My father-in-law is having his spleen removed today. He suffers from thrombocytopenia (low blood platelets). Removal of his spleen is a “last ditch” effort to cure this disease. Thanks for your prayers. I’ll update you on his recovery! Happy Wednesday!

*Update (3:24 pm) My father-in-law is out of surgery.  The surgery went smoothly.  Now, the next hurdle is to see if the surgery worked.  He will be in the hospital for the next few days as the doctors monitor his platelets.  Thanks for your prayers!
