Update for the Day & Dad's surgery

Just a quick update over the lunch hour!
My Dad had surgery today to have one of his kidneys removed due to suspected cancer. He did well in the surgery, and is now resting in his hospital room. He is in quite a bit of pain, but he has one of those button things for meds every 15 minutes that my mom is pushing for him=). So sweet.
We should know the results from the testing on the kidney some time next week. They have already done additional testing on him, and even if the kidney is malignant, the cancer hasn't spread (from what they can tell anyway), which of course is good news! Thank God!
In other news, two pregnant friends had scares this week, and one lost her baby (via ectopic pregnancy) and the other did not (baby looks great on ultrasound and is measuring perfectly). Scary! We are glad that both ladies and their families are doing well now, or as well as they can be. Our prayers are with both of them.
My only update now is that we stop birth control on Sunday! I can hardly wait. Clearing ultrasound and blood work are scheduled for Tuesday, and if all is well, we can start meds Tuesday night. Time is really flying now!
Hope you all are having a great day!
