Default Prayer warriors needed!

My FIL Robert Shaffer is scheduled for surgery this morning and could use all the prayers he can get. About 4 years ago he was diagnosed with cirrhosis of liver due to high iron in his blood and just recently his kidney function took a turn for the worse.
Although he had at least a half a dozen offers, unfortunately due to his age a live donor was not an option.
We got the call yesterday that they got a match for a liver and a kidney transplant. Apparently I cant put into words how amazing this man is without crying like a little girl so I guess Ill leave that part out

If you got an extra minute please send em up!

Prayers up! My BIL had kidney and pancreas transplants several years ago. At first, half of the family had alarms set to make sure he took all of the anti-rejection medications twice a day. It was definitely a life saving/changing operation.
