We are home!  Shane is still in a ton of pain, but we are keeping up on the pain meds.  He is doing so much better than his last surgery!  He is expected to have his next (and LAST) surgery in about 4-5 weeks (after he is healed).  Please keep him in your prayers for that!:)

Here are a few pics from the hospital:)

Yesterday's surgery went great!  It took about an hour longer than expected (about 4 hours total for the surgery) because the lymph nodes on his right side were a lot smaller and spread out than on his left.  Everything went well and Shane is doing wonderful!  He was in a ton of pain for an hour after being released from the recovery room, but they gave him some heavy meds and it really helped! Shane slept through the entire night and seems to be doing fine:)  Praise God!  He is expected to be released from Swedish either today or tomorrow:)

Thank you for all your encouraging emails, texts and phone calls!  I am sorry I haven't been able to keep up on responding!

Next Surgery....

Shane's next surgery will be October 27th.  It is expected to last only 2-3 hours to takeout some lymph nodes that they weren't able to get last time.  Our prayer is that his recovery will be less painful and quicker than the last surgery:)  Thank you so much for your prayers and support through this!  We are on the tail end!  Only 1 more surgery after this!
