Good news:
Tom B. came out of surgery yesterday and is feeling good today.

It seems that they are sending him home today (Wednesday),
and I will post again when I know more.

Congratulations, Tom :D

I just spoke with Tom and he seems to be doing MUCH better than I did.
With a bit of "better living through chemistry" for pain management,
he actually got some sleep last night.

He is still a bit exhausted, and eating very lightly - none of Kat's triangular
potatoes or things that might challenge the lower end of his exhaust system.

He expects to be able to read the forum soon, and write his own status.

And, yes, he appreciates all the good wishes and prayers.
Cheers, Gary

That's very encouraging to hear, Gary, thank you.

Please give Tom my best regards and tell him that he's in my thoughts.
