If all goes well, mom’s vertebrae will be fixed and after some physical therapy she’ll be good as new.
Obviously, mom could use a few prayers if you can spare them. It will be a very long, stressful day for my family, and thanks to our lousy manpower situation, I need to be in work until 3pm.
UPDATE: The surgery went well and mom is resting. She’s in tremendous pain, but we think the worst is over.
