Evening Update 12/11/17

Robbie’s surgery started at 2:00 and lasted a little over 2 hours. We got to see him at 6:00 tonight in the recovery room. They moved him to his hospital room (finally) at 9:30. Lynn is spending the night. Jim, Ruth, and I came home.

Robbie has a chest tube hooked up to his lung to drain fluids (yuk) and he is on oxygen. He has a 4 day pain med that is helping to block the chest pain. When we first saw him, he said that he had been asking for us. He looks pitiful.

Curly, his favorite sloth, went to surgery with him.

The doctor is a man of few words, so we don’t know much beyond the fact that he is confident he found all the tumors and removed them. He did an X-ray during and after surgery to double check. There was one larger tumor and three smaller ones.

Thank you for all your prayers and support. ❤

  1. Praying for minimal post-operative pain, effective pain control, and no complications from the surgery. Praying Robbie will bounce back quickly.
