Prayer request

My brother was rushed in for somewhat emergency surgery this evening. He is doing well. He was only in for about 45 minutes. His appendix had swollen and they wanted to get it out before it ruptured. He had been feeling bad off and on for the last little bit and started to a new doctor in the last month. His doctor had scheduled a cat scan or MRI, can't remember which, for Wednesday, but after feeling bad again Monday evening, they pushed it to Tuesday morning. After seeing the results, they sent him straight to the emergency room. They were able to use a scope to remove it and he could come home on Wednesday. Thanks.

UPDATE: I just got off of the phone with my brother and he is on his way home. The doctor told him to not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk for a week or two. That will be rough considering he has a six month old at home.
