Joe woke up from his scope today trying to fight everyone in the operating room.
The surgeon told me, “He’s a big guy, and he could really hurt someone.”
While this probably wasn’t ideal for the nurses, we’ll take the fighting spirit because the surgeon has officially cleared him for surgery.
The doctor went into Joe’s belly with a camera today to get a better look at the tumors and although they are spread out, the surgeon thinks he’s going to be able to get them all.
The doctor said over and over again this is a very serious surgery with a serious recovery. He says to plan for 8 to 10 hours for surgery. The longer the surgery, the better (easy for him to say).
Joe feels good and says the light seems brighter at the end of the tunnel.
The doctor was pleasantly surprised by what he saw. Surgery is scheduled for Monday.
We are taking this as our little bit of good news—– reporting from Houston.
