Surgery Updates via Facebook

I am so busy getting back into the swing of things at home and work since being gone that I don’t have much time to post right now.  But here are a few updates that I copied and pasted from Facebook.  I will write more later this week as there is much news to share.

Friday November 30th
Dad update – Very successful! They were able to remove the tumor and put the chemo wafers in. He is out of recovery and on his way up to his room in the Nuro-ICU. The doctor is very optimistic that this could give him another year or two. Thank you for all your prayers and concern.

Friday Night November 30th
I just have to say my father never ceases to amaze me. He is laying in the ICU with staples in his head after having brain surgery and says to me “There’s my girl. How are YOU doing today?” Oh wow….how did I ever get so lucky. Amazing father. Amazing man.

Saturday December 1st
Dad update- He has been moved out of the Nuro-ICU and onto the recovery floor. He got up and walked today and is eating real food now. They think he may be able to come home Monday. He has bounced back remarkably well this time. So much faster than before. Thanks to the nurses in the ICU. They are wonderful. So impressed at the quality of care he has received.

Monday December 3rd
Dad update- he was struggling yesterday and late last night they found that he has multiple blood clots in his legs and lungs. They went in around 2am this morning and put a device in that will “filter” the clots so they don’t go to his heart. He will be in the hospital for a few more days now.
