Big Time Prayers Needed

We have been on a 24 hour roller coaster that abruptly stopped at the top with a diagnosis of a brain tumor in my 38 year old son's brain. He was dizzy and vomiting yesterday, went to the ER and after a lot of tests, we got the diagnosis at 4 pm today. He is having surgery to remove a tumor that has a lot of blood vessels involved -- it is about a 3 inch mass that has to be removed or he will die. They are not even sure what they are dealing with, only that it has to come out. Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 9 am. Please, please pray for Steve. Thanks.
