I know it’s been a while since we’ve posted a blog, but I have a special prayer request. Today at 11:00am, my dad (Gary Leino) is going in for a major surgery on his spine.
In doctor talk, an MRI of his spine a couple weeks ago found that he has a central canal stenosis causing a cervical myelopathy. To fix this, the doctor told him he needed a C4-C5 posterior cervical laminectomy & fusion.
It’s about a 3-4 hour surgery and they’ll put him to sleep for it. They say the recovery (if all goes well) will be about a month. He’s pretty nervous about it so please pray for my dad, for the surgery and recovery, and for emotional comfort and strength. Also pray for my family, as well as the surgeons, doctors, and nurses. Thanks so much!
