John's wife, Jean, messaged me earlier to say that John's surgery was late this morning. The surgery went well and she expected John to be released tomorrow (Tuesday).

Re: John Zeiler

John is at home and has posted a reply to a thread he started in the LT forum about going on the lift for a final drive replacement. He is already up and moving about. Such good news. I'm glad, as I'm sure we all are, that everything went well. Way to go, doc! Excellent job!
