Westmoreland Has Surgery...Sox Lose and Lose Again

Ryan Westmoreland got through his brain surgery yesterday. See two posts below this one for what his ailment entailed. Here is the entire statement from the Boston Globe's EXTRA BASES...

"The Red Sox just released a statement saying that Ryan Westmoreland underwent successful surgery to remove a cavernous malformation in his brain today. The surgery was performed by Dr. Robert Spetzler at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix.
The procedure lasted five hours, and Westmoreland remains in the intensive care unit, but according to the press release from the Sox "has come through the surgery well."
The release also said that, "Due to the complexity of this surgery, Ryan will face a difficult period initially before beginning his recovery."

We, every one of us, wish Ryan the best in what is sure to be a complete road to health, a journey of ups and downs, sadness and euphoria. A journey to complete good health. Good luck, Ryan. You have a long road ahead of you but we're ALL pulling for you. God bless.

In less important news, the Houston Astros defeated the Boston Red Sox by a score of 3-0 and the Tampa Bay Rays bumped them off 7-0. The bright spot was Jon Lester's one run in three innings against the 'Stros. The "not so good?" No runs in two games for the Boston offense. I ain't worried. Not one bit.

Have a great Hump Day St. Patricks Day Wednesday. My goodness, that doesn't happen for another seven years! Click on the title of this post for all you need to know and as always, BE WELL.
