Well, it looks like the day is soon upon us......we are ready. Leave tonite for Palo Alto, Stanford Hospital. Made arrangements for the children, sitter at our home x 3 nites. Never been away from them, Karl is having a tough time with that aspect of this journey. They know daddy is having to go to special doctor far away, not sure how much they really understand, maybe better that way??
Bags about packed with all supplies, neck pillow, loose pj pants (i have opened then added velco to the midleft side to accomadate the foley catheter). Going to buy the donut today, will need for the long drive home (3 hours).
Moving the recliner into the family room, think will be more comfortable for him.
Scared, yes....darn scared.
I have asked God for yet another gift, the gift of cancer free health for my wonderful husband.
Will ask you all for your prayers. I will post from hotel in the evening.
Good surgeron, good hands= good outcome
thanks for all the info you have provided these past weeks, it has been a great help in understanding PC, preparing for surgery and for what is to come "on the other side".
