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. We’ll have the results of whether or not the lymph nodes were cancerous in a week or so.
Tom’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!
