  • Brian's surgery

    Hello all
    We got a call this morning from Dr. Jarnigan's nurse, they scheduled Brian's liver surgery for october 17th. so now he will be able to be the best man in his best friend's wedding! we are both in the wedding party. i didnt want to go without him .....

    all 3 of his Dr's talked it over and decided that its ok if he waits until then.
    so, Brian is not to excited about having this surgery, but he is relieved that he can attend the wedding. AND! we are both in another wedding party on november 3rd! so looks like he will be ok for that one too.

    the RPLND will not be for a months after the liver surgery i think
