Gallbladder Surgery

Yesterday my father went to the doctor for some testing and it turns out he has gallstones. I just found out that he'll be going in for surgery tonight to have his gallbladder removed. Please keep him in your prayers.

I'll admit, I didn't even know exactly what gallstones were until this afternoon. If anyone else is in the dark, here's the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallstone and some charming images:

That does not look like fun.

I've heard that you can make jewelry out of gallstones...I wonder if he gets to keep them afterwards.

Oh, Angie, your dad and family are definately in my prayers! PLEASE let me know if there's anything else I can do.

My dad keeps his gallstones in a little plastic jar in his office. I know this is not very creative, but you know Larry the Luminous.
