Keep my family in your thoughts, please.

One of my maternal uncles is in the hospital. He’s got a staph infection. It appears to be located at stent that was inserted previously, and is going to be having surgery to replace the stent with a graft.

Update-There are several more tests that have to be done before surgery can be done, but the hospital appears to have the infection under control right now. My uncle had a heart attack several years ago, and his cardiologist has to approve the surgery before it happens. So its a holding pattern for the moment.
