Update on Johnny Nabors 10/23

Loretta wrote this update:  "Johnny is in recovery, haven’t got to see him yet but Dr Temple said he did good. Said he had a “garage door” gap in this rotator cuff, but he fixed it...We will be able to see him when they move him to day surgery shortly. Dr Temple said it will probably take about a year for him to heal...☹️I’m going to pray it is much shorter than that!"
