Yesterday, after two weeks of really stressing weeks, my dad had his very long surgery. They found many more tumours than they expected (even after all the scans, tests, MRIs, etc.) but they also managed to do more than they were planning at the beginning.
They say the surgery was a complete success, and they expect the recovery to be painful but fast. He spent the night in the Intensive Care Unit, so we haven't seen him since yesterday's morning.
I want to thank all the friends who said a prayer or sent their good wishes, I believe all your good will helped for this outcome.
The danger is not gone yet, but the first part is done at least.
I'll try to go to the park close to home yesterday, I need some birds to stare at, even if it is for a minute or two. Last weekend Tommy and I visited Cieneguilla, not far from home, and got a couple of lifers. I'll write about it soon.
