    Hi..

    We are home.. he did very well with the surgery, and it was day surgery. Gosh, I hate that they throw you out of the hospital the next day when you have had neck surgery.. He is not in too much pain, does have a drain and we have to go back next week to have that out. The surgeon took that node and a few others, Tom is bandaged and we are now waiting for the visiting nurse to come to take care of his drain and check on him. Remember the days you stayed in the hospital until you were ready to go home, those days are gone and now the family does the work that nurses should be doing.....I do not mind doing it for Tom.. he is the best, but am I qualified??? We can discuss that at length another day.

    I will keep you informed on how he is doing, but for now, he is mending and getting over the general anesthesia which is enough to make anyone feel loopy for days..

    Oh my goodness. Even for this surgery they don't keep you????? What a sad thing our medical care has become.

    I know you will make a great nurse and I hope you get great results!!!

    I too have been wondering how things went and want you to know you both remain in my prayers. Too bad hospitals don't allow more stay, but he truthfully he probably gets more rest at home, plus you can give him plenty of TLC. :hug:

    Hope your sweet little DGS Thomas is doing well too! :goodvibes
