Update From The O.R.

Dr Malogolowkin a/k/a Dr Marcio just came down to brief on the progress of Pablo's surgery.

The left kidney, he said, was in Dr Hardy's hands hand he went into the operating room. The kidney looks good, and the surgeons were strategizing the tumor removal and kidney reconstruction when Dr Marcio stepped out.

The tumor appears to be the size of a golf ball (exactly as the imaging had shown it), and there are no affected lymph nodes visible at this point in the surgery.

Dr Marcio said he'd never seen so many urologists in one operating room. Jo Ann and I, we like the sound of that.

More info as we get it.
