Whew! Dad is FINALLY out of surgery. The surgery we expected to last 2 1/2 hours took almost 8. Then, the hospital staff brought us into a conference room. Of course we expected the worst, but he's doing well. It was a lot bigger job than the doctor expected due to his size, but he's recovering nicely now. Mom and I haven't eaten since VERY early this morning, so we're going to grab a bite to eat and hopefully Mom will get to see him soon. (Unfortunately, I have a nice little case of conjunctivitis and won't be able to see him for while.) Thank you guys SO much for all of your thoughts and prayers. Please continue to pray for Dad as he recovers.
