Let me first say that I couldn’t be happier to get Captain Ed’s report that surgery for his beloved First Mate went well. Here’s part of Ed’s hospiblogging:

1:24 – Excellent news! The surgery is done, and the kidney is already producing urine. The doctors saw stones in her appendix and decided to do an appendectomy as long as they had her open, especially since stones precede appendicitis. She will be in recovery for two hours and then will return to her room. The donor has also gone to recovery, and except for a little bout of high blood pressure, did just fine. He’ll be leaving the hospital perhaps as early as Sunday.

Ed, That is excellent news!!! I couldn’t be happier for you & your entire family. I can’t imagine going through what you & your beloved First Mate & family have gone through. I’m just thankful that you’ve had the Admiral Emeritus to learn from and the ‘Marriage Encounter prayer team’ to comfort you. Ed, know that I’ll keep all of you in my prayers. Know, too, that the ‘St. Cloud Discovery Church prayer team’ is keeping you in their prayers, too.

I had the pleasure of meeting Captain Ed & his First Mate at a Hugh Hewitt event that the Patriot radio station sponsored last October. Though I knew that Ed was one of the finest men in the blogosphere prior to that event, the conversation I had that night with him just confirmed that opinion.
