For those of you who have been so kind to ask, I thank you for your support. Here's an update on Greg.
His surgery was scheduled to begin at 11:30 -- He FINALLY got into surgery, at a bit after two. The Gov's kid was there for surgery, too, and that seemed to be one of the things holding stuff up. Probably not the only thing.
It took about three hours and he's in recovery. They managed this surgery without paralyzing the other vocal chord, for which we are most grateful, and the scar/incision was only about 5" instead of the 14 or so inches of the other. So, that's good.
Greg desperately wanted them to take pix with his camera and they obliged. They're pretty cool, really, although Rick didn't want to look at them. Robin (Greg's mom) and I were sort of fascinated.
He'll be in recovery a couple of hours, then in a room or area. They expect he will be released tomorrow morning, although with the surgery delay, maybe the afternoon (since they told us that before they did anything.)
While the wait seemed long, I had plenty of yarn and got about two-thirds through a purse! Not bad! Didn't even get to my book yet; that's next!
And for those who are wondering, I won't be posting his surgery pix on the blog. Probably not even if he asks!
That's the news here. Thank you all for your thoughts, good wishes, prayers, and support. It means so very, very much.
