The surgery is finally over and it went well! Everything went according to plan, the doctors said. The tumor wasn't attached to any vessels, and the margins were clean, which is all really positive.
The doctors said the mass on his tumor was hard and "almost definitely" cancer. The pathology report will be back in around a week.
It's estimated that the recovery will take around a month.
He's in good spirits and cracking jokes as usual. Still coming off the pain medication he mumbled "Days of Thunder, I don't like Tom Cruise but I like the movie."
Thank you all for your support.
