On Thursday 12 February Frank's surgery started at 5 pm and ended at 11 pm. It was a very long day.
We made it home from the hospital yesterday morning. It is so good to be home! Frank is doing good. He is tolerating the pain well except when he has to cough... then he hugs a pillow to help calm the pain and yelps a little. He still has the JP drain in and a bunch of staples in his stomach... they were unable to do the surgery laparoscopically.
Frank sees the doctor on Tuesday. By then there should be a thorough report on the tumor... yes tumor. The pathology says an endocrine tumor... but if it cancerous or benign is yet to be determined... or we simply aren't being told until the surgeon has all the information he wants in order to proceed.
Needless to say we are both tired, but extremely happy to be out of the hospital. The nurses and nurse's aides were super.
I will soon start reading your wonderful blogs... I just need some rest before doing so.
