Please Pray for My Brother, Allan, He is Having Heart Surgery

My brother Allan from the blog Fun With Perler  is going to be having open heart surety tomorrow.

 Last year  he was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (genetic issue). He didn't seem to have many symptoms and we didn't think it was that serious. We were wrong. In July we were told that he will need a defibrillator. In August we were told that his condition was very serious and that he will need open heart surgery.

On the positive side of things, he will have surgery at Johns-Hopkins and his surgeon is very experienced. The surgery will be VERY intrusive and extensive, but the survivability rate is 100%. The surgeon states that, if all goes as planned, Allan should not have any more issues for at least 30 years.

To say the least we have been very stressed this week. I have found that stress comes out in very weird ways. This is the main reason I have not been posting this past week. I do apologize, but it has been alot to take in and alot to keep in all my insanity.
Thank you for all your prayers for Allan and my family. Allan seems to be relaxed about it. The surgery will take place in the morning, we have to be there at 730am. As soon as I find out he is out of surgery I will post another blog, twitter, facebook, etc.
Thank you all inadvance for all your prayers!!!
