{Prayer Request}

Tomorrow Jeff and I will be on our way to Tampa General Hospital. Jeff is getting another surgery for his vocal cord. The last surgery he did in July did not fully push the cords together so this should help. The surgery is very basic it is going to last about 30 minutes. The doctor is going to stick a needle in his mouth and down his throat and fill the paralyzed vocal cord with a ‘steroid’ that will plump up the vocal cord, causing it to move toward the center of his voice box and meet the other vocal cord when he speaks. The procedure is only temporary, so he will have to get it done every 1-2 years if it works.
