I spoke with Wormy this evening and I have pretty much all the information now. It's very serious.
The bacteria Wormy has in his blood is Streptococcus bovine. How he got that no one seems to be able to figure out, but it has wreaked some serious damage. They did pull the cracked tooth that may have been the culprit, but it took an oral surgeon to get it all out.
Wormy will be under going surgery tomorrow morning. The surgeon said that they don't ususally do surgery on Friday, but in his case they will. Not only are they going to replace the damaged heart valve, but the bacteria has deteriorated part of the aorta, and they will be performing an aortic graft as well. Since they have to order a synthetic graft, they would have to have known about the aortic deterioration for a few days now.
I have been able to get ahold of his family and let them know, but, they live in Wisconsin and Illinois respectively, and will probably not be able to come here. Anyone who can come see him after the surgery should. He will need all the support he can get, then and during his recovery. I will be glad to give information to anyone who needs it.........that is if I have left anything out.
Send all your thoughts, prayers, wishes, healing energy, or whatever you think will work........we'll take all of it we can get.
Hoping and praying,
Make a joyful noise unto your Kingdom!
