~Things are looking better..~

Things are looking a lot more positive after PH had his surgery on Wednesday.We spoke to the surgeon, who told us he could only see two small areas that were questionable. He removed them for biopsy, and we are scheduled to see him for results in about two weeks.He felt so good after the procedure, his blood pressure and vital signs all excellent, he was allowed to come home later that day. He is not allowed to do anything strenuous for 3 weeks, (I've hidden the golf clubs!) and after then he should be fine.
We have made plans with my sister and her husband to go away for Thanksgiving weekend, Friday to Monday, and have rented a place on the lake. It will be nice to get away together, and bonus! there is a big craft fair on in the local village that weekend too! I've been slowly adding Fall decorations to the house, the dining room is done, and I'm about to start on the kitchen. We are having some glorious weather, and the trees are starting to change, slowly but surely.Once again, thank you to everyone for their prayers and kind wishes. Especially those who are going through through their own battles. YOU know who you are..xx
I really feel that all the love, prayers and good wishes we have received have made a huge difference. This, and the skill of our fantastic doctor gives us hope for the future.
