John's surgery went well yesterday, though it was disheartening to hear his lab biopsy showed that, along with the basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer was also present in the affected tissue area. This resulted in a more extensive and deeper surgery than we had anticipated and necessitated the taking of a skin graft from just in front of John's right ear. Amazingly he is not feeling any pain and hasn't had to resort to taking any pain medication, not even Tylenol. We're not sure if perhaps this pain numbing could be a lingering effect from the anesthesia or if he has just been very blessed. Either way we are most grateful.
Now if I can just get him to take it easy and not over do things. At this moment he is bored and has been pacing the house looking for something to do, he never was one to just sit idle and relax. Presently I feel reminiscent of the days when one of my children were sent home from school sick, only they weren't so ill that they wanted to lay in bed and sleep, instead they wanted to play with their toys or run about the house.
I wish to thank all of you for your sweet thoughts, kind words, and well wishes and as soon as things return to some semblance of normalcy I will return to my more typical blog posts.
Until then I send my gratitude and fondest regards to each of you.
