Dad update

They took him back around 7:30ish am and he was in recovery around 10:30ish am. He was back in his room around 11:30ish am and still hurting at 12:15pmish when I called mom to check on him. Mom said he feels cold to the touch although he says he isn't. The doctor said there didn't seem to be anything suspicious but they took the lymph nodes anyway. Doc. said he didn't think any nerves were damaged and that he will still be in the hospital for 4 days.

Mom is checking on whether G can or cannot go visit while he is there. Tomorrow is Dad's bday. Mom said she doesn't want us up there because Dad doesn't look good. I would like to visit with G and bring him a balloon but we will respect both of their wishes. Dad doesn't like to be seen in a vulnerable position. But who really ever does? Also, I am not sure how to explain to G how she can't climb on him.

Other than the biopsy and today my dad was in the hospital one other time and that was for tonsillitis when he was little.

Thanks for the well wishes. It does mean a lot to me.

Found your blog through Everyday in May. So sorry to read about your Dad's medical troubles. Just walked that road and it's a tough one.
