A friend under the knife

An old Talmud-study buddy (when we were Black Pots together) goes under the knife today for a risky scoliosis operation to relieve his back pain. I don’t know what the odds are but it has the possibility of rendering him paralyzed or a vegetable. So prayers are in order and I ask you to drop one for him when you get a chance.

UPDATE: Good news. See comments.

    Hope so.

  4. Good news from the source his ownself: “Nine hours of it, correcting an inherited Scoliosis. Rods, screws, wires…I’m a regular suspension bridge…Currently I’m sedated, levitating nicely. When that wears off, the surgeon said, “You’ll feel like you’ve been in a car wreck.”…I will pull through. I want to see all my friends again.”
