Thread: quick update

  1. #1

    Default quick update

    Today is the day for my dad. We are going to the hospital at 10:30. The surgery is expected to take about three hours. I think I am more nervous than he is. We had a good talk about it yesterday. He seems to be OK with what ever happens.

    (for those who don't know my dad has a couple of tumors in his bladder and is having them removed today).

    Everyone cross your fingers. I will try to update everyone later.


    (for those of us who pray, I'll take some of that too)

    OK, what a long day. My dad came thru OK. The Dr sat down with me and explained what he found.
    Two tumors neither which are blocking the kidneys. first tumor was removed successfully the size of a half dollar(shaped like broccoli) the 2nd much larger was on the top of the bladder on the inside the size of a baseball. He was only able to get to about half of in it. so my dad is home and has a catheter in until Monday. He is not real happy about that. The Dr. is waiting for the pathology to come back maybe Friday probably Monday. Then he will consult with a couple of doctor at the univ. of Iowa. So he said he will have a game plan for the remaining part of the tumor on Monday. Not the best scenario but, it could be allot worse.

    Thanks everyone for everything.
