Dad will have surgery Tuesday!

We finally got a date! We found out yesterday that he'll have the open heart surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm in the thoracic region. Dad is anxious now, understandably. I was thrilled yesterday to finally have a WHEN, but now the nervousness is sinking in. I'm trying to get things together so that I'll be 'ready' for Tuesday. I've contacted my professor to let her know why I may not be in class that night. My sisters and I are both taking the day off to stay with Mom. My student teacher will be assisted by a retired teacher as a substitute that day, so I'm sure things will be just fine!

Please pray for Dad, and for his surgeon to have steady hands!
