Well, it's all over and all okay! What a relief!
Tom had a miserable night staying up into the wee hours of the morning, still drinking and expelling that horrible preparation cocktail they give you before surgery.
He was feeling very hungry, very worn out, and anxious to just get on with it, so, we arrived at the hospital a little early and he had to sit around in those weird gowns for a few hours. His surgery was scheduled for 11:55 am, but he never went in until 12:55 pm.
The doctor called with the good news that although it was a little difficult (I failed to ask what that was about), they removed a foot of his colon and figured they got it ALL!!
The lymph nodes also have been removed and the Doctor said, until the results are back from pathology, they won't know for certain, but confident there won't be a problem.
He was still in recovery, was not in pain, and would be in his room until 9 tonight.
I'll be back in the morning to see him.
Thanks EVERYONE for your good wishes and prayers....they worked!
Another update and maybe a picture tomorrow.
I'm off to the tub to relax and off to bed!
