    Default Thinking of you Rob

    I just wanted to make a place so we could all let you know that we are thinking about you and your family today. I know the surgery is going on and I want you to know that all of you are on our hearts

    Dad is in the recovery room. Surgery took about 3 hours. Everything went very well, there were no surprises, and no sign of any cancer spreading. What cancer they did take out, was in the surgeon's words "nicely killed" by the previous radiation and chemo.

    Everything so far has gone as well as it can go, and the hardest part of today is now behind us. We'll be able to see dad later this afternoon. He should be in his room and able to see visitors by the morning. Today was far less stressful than I thought it would be. Mom is very relaxed, and not stressed much at all.

    Thanks for thinking of us Mari,

    Rob

    Rob,
    It sounds like things are going well - I am so glad!
    Your Dad is a truly strong man - that must be why you are one also. Wish him a fast recovery from me.
    Now, take some time to pamper yourself a bit before he comes home from the hospital.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Everything went well, but damn, he's hurting. Says the pain is far worse than the bypass operation last year. For him to actually complain that it hurts, means it really does hurt.

    All the technical stuff is good, and on paper he's OK, he's just really uncomfortable. We're heading back over in the morning, and hopefully they will have adjusted his pain meds to allow him at least a few hours sleep.

    What a day it's been. I'm glad it's almost over.

    Rob
