Jack out of emergency surgery

Wednesday, 4:00pm

Jack is out of his emergency surgery, which took six hours.  He had a large blood clot on his brain, which caused pressure and swelling, and his team has been able to correct it.   The team was also able to leave the grid on his brain in place (which was inserted on the first surgery), which is an essential part to be able to continue testing for Jack’s next surgery.  Jack is back in the ICU now and has assisted breathing during his post-op recovery.

Thank you for all of your prayers.  Please continue to pray that Jack can be strong while recovering from his second brain surgery within three days.
