We are praising God tonight!
My dad's surgery went much better than we expected! We were told that he would need a transfusion, be in ICU for several days, and most likely need a colostomy.
But people were praying....
Lots of people were praying.
And God answered those requests with a resounding "YES!"
Dad did not need a transfusion or a colostomy and he is resting comfortably in his own room! No ICU!
He is so excited about the outcome and was talking to us non-stop. I thought he would sleep most of the day but I don't think he slept a wink after he got out of recovery.
Thank you so much for your prayers! My dad, who was pretty much home-bound before the surgery due to the tumor bleeding in his bladder (and causing blockages which resulted in trips to ER), is now going to be able to travel again. He has a new lease on life! His bladder was removed and he won't have any more worries about it again. Yay! There was still some cancer there but the tumor was removed. So we will see how the cancer responds to the medicine he is talking.
For now...we rejoice!
