More about Grandpa

Grandpa is set for surgery on Tuesday. My mom told me they are going to try and take 12 inches off his colon. Holy shit! I colon must be bigger than I realize.

Everyone is really postive, but the big test is going to be his heart. It isn't super strong and the big concern is that it isn't strong enough for this intense of a surgery.

Wow, being a grown up sucks.
