It's Mon., 5:50PM, and we just talked to Dino's surgeon, Dr. Norton. Kuato is now history (all 30 pounds of him!) Dino went in at 10:30AM this morning so the whole surgery took about 7 hours. We won't be able to see him tonight - the doctor said he'll probably be out for at least 24 hours.
I don't have a lot of specific info because we only had a short visit with the surgeon. By tomorrow morning, I assume that we will have talked to Dr. Charlotte Jacobs, the oncologist who is overseeing this whole thing. Suffice it to say, we all just exhaled - and life at this moment is very good. I promise that by tomorrow I'll have plenty of info for all of you wonderful friends. As soon as I hear it, I'll pass it on to you. The only specifics right now are that, while they got all of the tumor, there were several areas that will require chemo because they didn't want to radiate them. My sense is that Dino is out of rough water and on his way to a healthy recovery.
So - let's regroup tomorrow. Until then, we love each and every one of you.
