We head back to Pretoria early tomorrow morning. JohnD will have an appointment with his Dr at Little Company of Mary, where they will put his port needle in and draw the necessary blood. We will then take him to the Zuidafrikaans Hospital (where he had his surgery in March) and they will admit him for surgery around 1pm. They will be removing the #10 rib on the right side with it's surrounding tissue.
We will be away for approximately a week. They do not anticipate needing to enter the chest cavity, so it will hopefully be less painful and less traumatic as last time.
We covert your prayers and messages. We all really believe that this is the right decision.
