Is it Wednesday? .....1st post-op day

Rob is making good progress today. Now, good progress, in this case is very different from what Rob would normally consider a good day's work: Painting part of the house, mowing the lawn, raking, planting shrubs, building something! Today, progress is: sitting up in the chair for 30 minutes, eating a little Jello, drinking tea, and having one of the 5 indwelling tubes/catheters removed.

Dr. Jackson started his tube feeding today to make sure he has the nutrients he needs to begin to heal. He's tolerating this just fine, and hasn't had any nausea.

His neck is sore and incredibly swollen and bruised. He still has the morphine pump, which is keeping him as comfortable as is possible.

I'll try to update again later tonight.

Again, thank you for all of your prayers!


  1. Praise the Lord all is going well!
    Thanks for the updates. We'll keep praying!

  2. Great News! I'm praising Our Heavenly Father for His blessings! Praying for you two!

  3. Okay! I've caught up! Thank goodness things look real well.

    Thank God for morphine! ;-)

    Sweet (relieved it's over,) dreams!

  4. Even bigger hugs today for you all!
