Praise Be To God

Today Gary DePollo underwent a lengthy surgery, a Whipple Procedure, to make sure he will be here to provide you all updates, news, and musing for years to come.

We arrived at the hospital about 5:30am and made our way to the surgical floor, where he was quickly taken back to get the whole process going. Surgery began shortly after 8:00am. A few “they are still in surgery and he is still doing fine” later and we got to meet with the surgeon, about 5:20pm. All of our anxiety was quickly relieved when we heard, “It went well and Gary did great.”

Thank you all for your love, thoughts, and prayers. Know that we return them all and then some.
