It starts (Update #1)

It's 8am, Dad was taken back to the OR at 7:19 so now the waiting game started. Dad was in great spirits considering what he will be going through today. I'll try to keep this updated throughout the day and the coming week.

6 months ago this week our nightmare of 2009 started and we are hoping that today closes our nightmare and a new dream starts, a good one. It's been a rough year for our family and even my best friend Val and if there is one thing I have learned this year...

"Never say never or it cant get worse than this"

We have found out first hand that things can take a turn for the worst even when you think all the cards have been dealt. So starting today, we are going to have a good hand and hold on to that hand all of 2010.

Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes! Our entire family appreciates it more than you will ever know. They say the surgery will be 6-8 hours if all goes well, so we sit back and wait... it's going to be one long day.

Thinking of you today Ashley. I can relate to what you're going through with this "waiting period" right now. My dad went through this surgery 7 years ago and the day his surgery took place was one of the longest days of my life. Thoughts and prayers.
