Interesting Process

We just received a brief update. It took about 35 minutes in the operating room for them to finishing prepping Jodi. Dr. Shelton just started making the incision 10 minutes ago. He is getting everything ready for Dr. Couldwell, who will arrive at 11:00 a.m. to surgically remove the tumor. The nurse said we'd hear more at about 12:30 p.m.

Thank you again for your prayers.

Orgills -

Josh Griffin here. The old Ghadban Ct. crew is praying. My sister-in-law (age 21) was diagnosed with MS last summer and is working closely with the neuro team at Hopkins. If we can be of any help there, please let me know - .

We're praying here in Pleasant Grove, too. Jodi is in our minds and hearts today, as are the rest of her family members who wait so vigilantly. The doctors' hands will be guided.

Thanks for the updates. This is a brilliant form of communication and a great way for us to understand everything that's happening with this person we care so much about.

Love you, Jodi!

I have been trying to post a comment for the past hour - i am not good at this:) Jodi has been constantly in my thoughts and prayers. I know that angels will be surrounding her. I am so glad Von that you were able to make it in time to see her before she went into surgery. We love all of you. Thank you for the updates. Cami, Ashley, Kirt and I are praying for all of you.
