I just got a call from our Dad. He informed me that they were unable to do the surgery laproscopically because the tear had gone from minor to a massive tear in the time period from when it was diagnosed (late April, early May) to now. They had to open up her shoulder to repair the tear. This will make the recovery process more intense and likely more painful. It will also take much longer to heal from. So your prayers are greatly needed.
A special thanks to everyone praying for our Mom.
