I just got off the phone with Judy and she asked me to post a quick update. Kip has an infected bone in his toe and they are going to need to have an operation to remove the small toe on his left foot. He has been in the VA hospital in Richmond since Wednesday November 11th. The operation is tomorrow and he should be in the hospital for two more weeks. It is thought that the infection came when a doctor was cleaning the foot and removed some skin but took off too much. Prayers would be greatly appreciated. I will post another update after the surgery.
