Up date.


IT WAS A SUCCESSFUL SURGERY!
It has been a most long day, but certainly worth the wait--the surgeon feels confident that they removed all of the cancer, and the pathologist concurs. The pathology report will not be back for several days, but we are happy with what the doctors told us unofficially.


The surgery lasted for six hours, plus recovery time, plus time to get settled in ICU. And in spite of this, the man has enough energy and manners to learn the nurses' names and to crack a few jokes with them.


It will be a long recovery period, but we are up for it. Each day some new understanding reveals itself and we are happy within our "season."


Sorry to be so brief, but I am just plain tired! Jesse asked me to thank you for such beautiful messages of love and support. Love, Cindy
