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:)
