All that waiting paid off, kids! Dad made it out of the surgery all well and good. We won't know the final, final, final result til one week, but the doctor said "I'd be surprised if it's cancer." I know doctors, and they would never say that kind of thing if they didn't believe it. They are just too cautious to be able to toss around words like that.
Thanks, all, for your well wishes and your support.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming! Back to NYC tomorrow.
