OT: UPDATE:****Need Prayers
My wife is at University of Michigan hospital about to have brain surgery at 2pm today. As im sitting here with her in the preoperative room, my nerves are going crazy waiting for the doctor. She is a huge football fan and she is connected to Michigan football through Facebook. So she usually informs me on recruiting if I haven't read it on here. I just ask for prayers for her. We both have faith in the doctors here. She's having a shunt put in her head because of fluid built up and will not drain. This is the last option. She's a trooper and she just said Go Blue with a smile!
[ED: PGB - I took the liberty of awarding you 1,000,000 MGoPoints for the week - may they provide you sustinence during the tough road ahead in hopes that the Board might serve as an escape (a crappy escape but an escape nonetheless). Keep us updated!]
Update: My wife just went into the recovery room and the doctor said that everything went well and that she will stay overnight and go home tomorrow. I just have to worry about infection for the next 3 months. Everything is draining well from the shunt. I immediately had tears rolling down my face and gave the doctor a big hug. She has been through so much as a 30yr old woman. She just wants her life back and I think she's heading down the right path. I guarantee that your prayers made a huge difference and I pray that none of you ever have to go through this with anyone that you love. You guys are really great for support and Michigan won a huge battle for me and my family today. Now for the issues about our football team. I love this blog for the reason that we all are on the same side and we wanna win very bad. Everyone has different opinions and only time will tell what will happen. We are all very frustrated and losing faith in coaches but I will pray for this team to turn it around like you all have for me. In the end we will return to winning big ten championships. Thank you all and GO BLUE!
