Thumbs up for the morning after surgery!!

His pain is managed, he’s sitting up in a chair and EATING! He is currently working on some eggs, bacon and toast.

Kareem, the anesthesiologist, came by and told his nurse that she has the easiest patient on the floor. He also mentioned that James was a great case and is very pleased with how things went yesterday! His nurse, Diana, had him up in the chair at 5am. Last night she had him listening to some tunes to help him focus on relaxing.

Dr. Wain told him this morning that he got everything he felt or saw, he didn’t believe there had been any further spread, and confirmed that only 15 of the 30 nodules removed were pheo related. They got everything there was to get!

Happy Friday!!!!

Love,
Kate

  1. So happy surgery went well! It’ll will be a wonderful day when this is all in the rear view mirror. I am in the last half of my chemo treatments for breast cancer and am so excited that I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel. I think of Jay often and remember what a cute little boy he was. Have a great Thanksgiving! We all have so much to be thankful for! ~ Parker
