Thank you all for your prayers and special thoughts.
Mark's surgery went very well. The surgeon was able to do everything he planned to do and didn't have to do a couple of the procedures we were hoping he would not need to. Does that make sense? I'm pretty drained but just wanted everyone to know Mark is doing well.
We got to see him in ICU and visit with him. He was able to joke a little and had us all laughing.... His main concerns were 1.) He wanted the catheter OUT and 2.) his head hurt
It was hard to leave him but he really preferred we all go home and get rest. I think he needed time himself to rest and heal.
I'm very proud of him as always....
I will try to update more when I feel I have more cohesive thoughts.
It's been quite a day and we are all pretty exhausted.
Thank you all for your thoughtful texts, calls and emails. It really helped us get through the day.
