Wed Oct 19 Day of Surgery

Boyce's surgery went very well.  It took them a little less time then they thought, and everything went as planned...thank you God! They removed the entire left kidney. The tumor is renal cell cancer, and we will find out more about the staging, or aggressiveness of the cancer on Friday when pathology comes back.  They did not have to take out the ureter, which is a big blessing.  Not sure how long he will be there, it could be as early as tomorrow evening, but we're pushing for Friday so he can have that great Mayo care for one more day.  Boyce and I cannot describe how grateful, how overwhelmed we are by all of the love our Hope family, and our new Tres Dias family, have shown us.  All of you who came to the hospital today...thank you!!  The beautiful meals Chef Michael and Janine dropped off at our home, and fed our kids while we were at the hospital...thank you!!  All the loving texts and emails we received from family and friends...thank you!!  And most of all....all of the prayers that we felt, and were answered today...thank you!!  We feel so very very blessed....
