Ben might be coming home Thurs :) He is having trouble tho with his bladder so may have to come home with the Cath still in... they took it out Saturday but Ben couldnt hold his urine so they decided yesterday to put it back in... Hopefully with time and healing this will improve. If not we will deal with that... Both Ben and me are just so happy the surgery is over and we think Dr Gearhart is a wonderful doctor. Now on to healing then chemo and hopefully remission again. :)

    our luv and huggs to yah both--kanga n Jen

    Dear Tessyann
    Nice to see you smile :)
    So glad to hear that the worst is over for Ben, and now the healing can begin. As "Dorothy" would say, "THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME!".
