it's a kidney!

A short update--

Surgery was at 7:30 Thursday morning. Dad woke up from the surgery perkier and more animated than ever -- even his voice sounded better! Amazing. There's even more spring in his step.

It's really all about pain control at this time for me. We have had several steps forward and backward. I will update more when I am not quite so tired (and on less percocet). :-)

They kicked me out of the hospital today...but we are in the middle of an ice storm so we are at a hotel until it passes. We will head home tomorrow.

peace out

I'm glad things seem to be going well. Going to be back on your feet just in time to enjoy the freaking cold...I'm sure you will be drinking wine again in no time =)
