Good news...

Neil is improving from day to day. He had all of his stitches and staples removed from his previous surgeries. He is breathing more and more on his own and relying less on the ventilator. The infection in his lungs has improved enough to go ahead with the surgery on his back. This surgery is to stabilize his vertebrae at the injury site, which will allow more freedom of movement without fear of further injury. What this surgery will not do is fix the spinal injury. The surgery is scheduled for Thursday, November 30 at noon. It is a 4+ hour surgery, so please keep Neil in your prayers. As always, thanks to all for your prayers and support.
