We praise God that He allowed our eldest grandson, Jonathan Ummel, to come through meso-Rex bypass surgery just now with flying colors. Blood flow is normal, just as if the portal vein were working normally, we were told. Jonathan is awake and alert here in the ICU six hours after he went under. The surgeon was Riccardo Superina and he said all is well. Thank you for your prayers. This is a pic of mother and father with son.
