#15 Beckyâ€™s Update from the Hospital
Tom was in surgery yesterday for just over 5 hours at Scripps Green Hospital in La Jolla, CA. His surgeon said the surgery went according to plan; they removed what was left of the tumor and most of his rectum, two lymph nodes and performed an ileostomy. Weâ€™ll have the results of whether or not the lymph nodes were cancerous in a week or so.
Tomâ€™s doing really well this morning. The nurses got him up and walking last night, and he was able to sleep for a few hours. Today he starts on clear liquids and is encouraged to walk as much as possible. The doctors are really pleased with his progress. I am thrilled!
Thanks for your continued support. We can feel it!
