We just talked to the surgeon. He said things went as good as they possibly could. There was very little bleeding. He also said that the early tests on tissue that he removed showed no signs of active cancer. The new spot that showed up on the scans didn't test for cancer cells either. He found no other visual evidence of cancer besides the liver area. Now keep in mind that these are very early test and the stuff that was removed must go to pathology before we will know for sure. The surgeon was very happy with the way things went. We will know more in the next couple days but we are heading in the right direction.
Please keep praying!!!!
He is up in the PICU now. He did so well that they took him off the ventilator and removed the tube from his nose. He was awake a couple of times and the first thing he asked for was Jen and Linda because he wanted to play Monopoly.
I am so proud of him. He is the toughest human being I have ever met in my life.
Dr. Houser stopped in and he said that Cody is in much better shape than they could have imagined. I don't want to jinx him though. Diane will spend the night at the hotel across the street tonight and I will stay there tomorrow. We want to be close at this point.
Keep praying please, it is definitely working....
