<Spoiler Altert> Cane Drop!
The number 15 has always been my favorite number. It was my number as I grew up playing soccer. Today, May 15th, 2016, the #15 gives me another reason to LOVE it! My dad is leaving the hospital after 10 days! That's right! He is leaving the hospital after major surgery. He is feeling great!
He is on minimal, as needed, pain medicine and sleep medicine. Next week, he will go out to CTCA to get blood work to make sure everything continues to look great. After 4-6 weeks, he will head back to New Orleans for a check-up where they will give him more information about his tumors. They will discuss the tumors on the liver and next steps. Until then, he needs to rest, recooperate, and eat to gain some weight! He cannot wait to be in his bed and lay by his pool. Believe it or not, they leave tomorrow at 1 pm to go back to AZ.
Today, is a great day to celebrate! He would not be dancing out of the hospital without the expertise of the surgeons, nurses, and the support and prayers of family and friends. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for everything you had done for him! On to the next step with a little break in between. Liver, you're next. Bring it on!
Love you dad!
