Surgery under way

Prepping Rolf for surgery

 I got to go with the surgical team into the operating room. Rolf is in good spirits. He is filled with infection. They are putting a tube into his back which will go into the shell of the dead kidney. He is on massive antibiotics & fluids. Hopefully they can clear the infection in a few days then figure out where the blockage is. 

It sounds like it is going to be a long road for Rolf.

Thanks for your love, support & prayers.
