Surgery is over!

Bill is out of surgery. They were able to remove several lymph nodes (they must have suspected or found cancer in those) & then the tumor with part of the bladder. He has about 50% of his bladder left. He did not lose much blood, so they didn't have to give him any. He stopped his blood thinner soon enough, I guess, that it helped with that. The dr. did not remove any of the prostate as he'd had Bill in surgery for 5 hrs. & didn't want to do more to him after that long. He's in recovery now. He is going to be moved to a regular room (not ICU), so Phil & Ruth will be able to see him around 5.
Thanks for praying!
