Surgery has begun...

Hey all.  This is Matt, Jen's husband.  She is on the road to Atlanta this morning.  Please pray for safe travels for her this morning as she goes to be with her family.


Joseph is currently in surgery.  It began at approximately 8am EST, and it will last anywhere from 6-14 hours.  Please continue to pray for the surgeons, that they will have steady hands, as well as wisdom as to what to remove and what not to remove.  Also pray for peace for Allen & Gillian, as they helplessly wait on the results of the surgery.

I will do my best to keep this updated while Jennifer is unable to.

We love you, Joe P.

Uncle Matt

Hi Gillian and Family, I am Margaret's best friend Bobbie from San Antonio, Texas. I don't know you personally but, feel like I do because she talks about you all the time. I wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. My heart breaks for you and I wanted to you to know that prayers do come from a long way as far as Texas. Margaret will keep me posted and I will be thinking about little Joseph and praying that he will get better as soon as possible so he can play with his little friend Matthew.
