Bob's surgery was yesterday - lasted about 8.5 hours. Docs got all cancer - clean margins, lymph nodes on right side, put in flap, fixed arm, skin graft from thigh, put in trache, etc. etc.! It was a long day (well not for him), but everything went exactly as planned.
Today he is resting in ICU, coughing up alot of mucous through the trache, which is disturbing, but they tell us is normal right now. Also having some nausea, again normal.
Main thing is - clean margins! Good news.... now to recovery.
