I'm Alive!

Hi everyone! Surgery ... check! Thanks for all the support these last weeks. I firmly believe it helps.

The surgery itself went well. They were able to remove the full tumor / node thing and they took my 12th rib just to be sure nothing had been spread to the bone. I am a bit hopped up on pain killers, but after spending one night in the hospital I woke up this morning ready to head back to our rental house to relax and recuperate. I have views of the water and am hanging out watching chick flix.

We will find out more concerning follow up treatment next week, but for now we're all in a good frame of mind and hope that this is a giant step in putting all of this behind us.

For those of you that figured I'd be checking my email within a day of surgery ... I made it 18 hours...
