Mom, Cindy and I were in the waiting room when Dr. Fell, Dad's neurosurgeon, came out to tell us the surgery went well. He removed everything he saw on the MRIs and the quick sample of the tumor they looked at during the surgery didn't look malignant. Dad's in the recover room now and will be moved up to neurological ICU in an hour or so as he comes off the anesthetic and then we can go see him.
Dr. Fell said they'll know more definitively about the tumor when they get a pathology report, which will probably be Friday. He said the tumor started in the brain (that's better than something that came from somewhere else) and it is a glioma. He said Dad might get to go home as early as Saturday.
