Prayer request for he who has been removed....

Please keep Teach, (Jerry) in your thoughts tomorrow as we go to Nashville for surgery on his badly infected right hand and middle finger.  He got a piece of steel in it while using his lathe a couple of weeks ago.  He saw our family doctor's nurse practitioner last week and she gave him some antibiotics.  The hand did not improve and when we went to get a cortisone shot for my left knee, my orthopedic doctor, who does not do hands told him he needed to see the doctor he recommended to see to it.  We went today and he said surgery tomorrow to clean out the infection, stronger antibiotics and leave the incision open for drainage.  Jerry takes Pradaxa, blood thinner, but they couldn't wait for it to clear out of his system without danger of more serious consequences to his hand.

He is in a lot of pain and hopefully tomorrow will take care of the problem.  Your prayers and good thoughts would be greatly appreciated. :'(
