I'm Back... For Now

The surgery itself went very well. The liver is healing fine, and has already begun regrowing. There was a complication, however, during recovery. Dad developed some breathing issues, and they are still with him. He's still in the ICU at Emory, with a way to go yet. Doctors and family are all optimistic. To quote his surgeon, "He's not critical. Just guarded. His lungs just need healing and strengthening."

Thank you all for the prayers and good wishes. For those who visited, special thanks!

While he's at this stage, there isn't much I could do. I'm having to burn vacation days to be with them, and I have only a few left. So I'm back in Macon for a while, trying to get some work done. I'll also be posting on here (as time permits).
