Prayer is powerful! Les was less apprehensive about the brain surgery than he gets when meeting new friends. He was chatting away with the nurse and doctors when they rolled him away.
Les is in surgery right now. After we left him in the most capable hands (Gods), we started a load of laundry and had breakfast at the McDonald's here at the hospital. It is within pager distance of the operating room.
I'll post again when we know more.
