Hello everyone. Erik went into the operation at 10:30 this morning and it took until 3:30pm for the doctor to finish. They showed me what they took out when I went to see him in the recovery room. It looked like a bunch of grapes. Yuk! Erik is feeling very rough now, but also glad to have it over with. Next week we will get the pathology report. At 9:00 pm he will able to drink some water, and they will also give him more pain relief. Thanks everyone for your kind words and help.
