Procedure involved removing gallstones

Apparently Bishop Listecki's procedure this afternoon involved the removal of gallstones, which are being removed via his esophagus from various ducts. There is no word yet on the outcome of this procedure.

Bishop Listecki spent Thursday night at Franciscan Skemp and Friday night at the Mayo Clinic before being released prior to today's procedure. Although gallstone removal is less dangerous than many other procedures I had imagined, the fact the bishop has had problems with his pancreas in the past makes for possible related issues.

Once again, please keep the bishop in your prayers. I will update readers on the procedure's outcome when the information becomes available.
