Surgery Almost Done......(praise the Lord!)

"1:20 Dr. Cameron just came out and met with us.They did the Whipple surgery and are closing now.The tumor was the size of a walnut. The margins were clear, and there was no spread.He said there were no surprises. Everything went well. Doug will be transferred to the Weinburg Intensive Care Unit (a different building in the Johns Hopkins complex from where we are now).Dr. Cameron told us to take a break and go to the Intensive Care unit there on the third floor between
3:30 and 4:00 and someone would let us know there when we could see Doug."

I can't get on web communications sites at school (like personal blogs), so I had my friend Jane keep an eye on the blog. I called her throughout the day, and she emailed, etc.. Once again, God has been so good, as we knew He would be! Praises and prayers will continue in the days ahead.
Thanks so much for the updates. Love you all.
