Finally… Some GOOD News

That’s right. GOOD news.

On Friday, Hubby got the call we’ve been waiting for. His surgery has been moved up to the earliest possible date: April 4 (that’s because his surgeon is on vacation this week). That’s 21 days earlier than before. Three weeks this stupid cancer won’t have a chance to grow anymore.

Right now Hubby is enjoying all his favorite foods, because after the surgery… he’ll probably have a feeding tube down his nose for a few weeks. Doesn’t sound like fun, but if it means they got all the cancer, he doesn’t care. I guess I wouldn’t either.

So… Yay! Thanks for all the good vibes. I truly believe they helped.

In other news… We stuffed ourselves silly yesterday. Found out that fresh ham tastes a lot like pork (has the same consistency, too). Very good, though. But then, I love pork. Haha!

Did anyone here see the Batman vs. Superman movie? I haven’t heard anything good about it, so I didn’t bother. Maybe I’ll watch it when it comes out on DVD. Which reminds me, I still want to get the DVD of The Martian. Now that looks like a fun movie.

Have a great Monday!

That's great news! I am keeping you both in my prayers.

re: movies
I've been hearing the Batman movie is overlong and dark, but still interesting. I'll wait for the dvd.

The Martian is a great movie though. Definitely put that on your queue.

Maria - I'll have to make a trip to WalMart and get The Martian. Apparently, it's been out awhile. D'oh!

Jennette Marie Powell said...

Yay for the moved-up date! I'll definitely keep him in my thoughts for a successful surgery and speedy recovery.

Glad you enjoyed your weekend and got some good news, too. Haven't seen Batman/Superman, but we did see Zootopia last week--it was much better than I thought. Have a good week!

The Martian IS a great movie. (And an even better book.)
I'm glad you got good news. Kick Cancer in the butt!

Jennette - Thanks! It certainly was the best news we could have gotten on Friday!

Jeff - Not sure what Zootopia is, but I see it got high rankings on Rotten Tomatoes.

J Lenni - Thanks for the comment and all the friend requests (Facebook, Goodreads). I see you're also a fan of Write Club. Great contest. Yes, we definitely want to kick cancer's butt!

Congratulations on getting the surgery moved up. We've been waiting 3 weeks to hear about Robert's surgery as well. What is it with these doctors and vacations?

Best of luck with everything if I don't see you around.

Anne - It always seems like we catch surgeons during their vacations I did, when I thought I was going to have heart surgery, and now Hubby. Like they're not entitled, right? At least Hubby's surgeon should be well rested!!
