Wordless Wednesday: Day After Sugery


He looks GREAT, doesn't he? The day after a 3 3/4 hour colon cancer surgery, he was up and walking around outside.

He loved the warmth of the sun. All of your good wishes made it here straight to his heart, and you can see it on that very beautiful face. Post-surgical pathology report due tomorrow afternoon. Here's hoping for the very best news.

  1. This is the hard part...the waiting. Remember to breathe and think about little stuff. Your friends far and near will send good thoughts and prayers while you try and relax. A la prochain.
