Situation normal and holding steady

The doctor is keeping Mark in a sedated state as they reduce the swelling and drain fluids from the operation area. FIL is on plane to Oregon to get things in order to come back down to the Del Mar house for the winter. Today when the nurse repositioned him, Mark gave her a thumbs up!!! Major cheering and the staff here is just wonderful. So we are the Three Amigas here and are taking turns being at the hospital. They did a CAT scan yesterday and the results are looking good and as expected. It's a waiting game and the song "I Want To Be Sedated" now has a very timely meaning. I will update as situations change. Thank you all for caring and prayers and comments. I will try to answer emails in a timely fashion ;-) I have Mark's cell and it is always on. Love you all <3333

  10. Heya gang. Argus has lost access to the net, so I'm posting the latest update for her.

    This afternoon the doc asked Mark to hold up two fingers and he did exactly that.

    What wonderful news this is! The thoughts and prayers are working. Keep them up and keep Argus, Farr and Gussie in your thoughts please.
