Dad's halfway through his surgery. Things look good. But really five hours to remove a teeny tiny gland? So weird, right? You should be able to take that puppy out in NO time, right?
Anyway they got a late start, couldn't find a vein. However, so far all is good. So long as they get it all without having to open him up, we're in the clear for a much easier recovery.
Thanks for all the good wishes, they're much appreciated. :)
EDIT: As I typed this they called me to say they had to open him up. Talk about jinxing yourself!
