I’m still at UCI and my dad came out of sugery about 45 minutes ago. They were able to get everything from what they saw and also remove two lympth nodes that were a concern. The doctor is going to have to biopsy the area they cut out to determine where to go from here. The doctor said that the PET scan didn’t show that it had spread anymore which is a huge praise.
He is in good spirits and wanting a cheeseburger.

Thank you so much for all your texts and emails. They have really been a encouragment and I appreciate it so much.

I’ll let you know when I know anything else…
