Surgery Is Over!

Dr Hardy just came down from surgery with great news. He got the tumor off, and saved two-thirds of the left kidney.

Our only goal today was to retain as much kidney as possible. This was a HUGE goal, and a HUGE unknown. So it's a MASSIVE VICTORY!!!!

The next goal in our series of goals is FAVORABLE HISTOLOGY of the right tumor. That golfball-sized ex-tenant of Pablo's body is now in the hands of pathology. They will do super-fine studies of the mass to determine histology.

We will get the pathology results in the second half of Wednesday. So, until then, it's zen time! We need everyone's lazer-like intention to keep pushing Pablo along.

You've kept ALL of us going so far. And now we ask that you double down. Keep your emails, blog comments, calls, cards, Bat signals coming!

THANK YOU!!!
