Surgery is Done

One of the nurse's assistants asked for the McCaffrey family at 10:45. We were very nervous because I immediately thought something went wrong. The nursing assistant would not tell us anything. All she said was that we had to wait to get into the ICU unit, and a nurse will tell us information. It seemed like an endless walk to ICU even though it is only 30 yards away from where we were waiting. On the other side of the door was Dr. Reardon. He gave us the best news. The tumor was out, and surgery was done. It was even better when he told us that they didn't take the manubrium out because they didn't need to. The manubrium looked too good for it to be taken out. He said that it will take an hour for them to get him out of OR to ICU. I have truly received the best Christmas present EVER! The number of prayers that we have received is the number of "Thank You"s I have for each and every one of you. You have lifted his spirits up! Go Willpower!
