Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Dad was rushed into emergency surgery yesterday morning. We were unsure of exactly what the issue was but initially they thought a ruptured bowel . When they got in there they found his gallbladder was dead as well as his ulcer had opened and leaked out some infection. They were able to clean it out and remove his gallbladder. I will keep this updated as we get more news .
