Positive Update on Bob

Visited Bob at the hospital this afternoon and evening. He is doing very well. The doctor is pleased and amazed at how quickly he is recovering. All tubes and wires are off. He is sitting up and even walked for a bit. He says he is tender but not really sore. Four little cuts - they actually encircle the adrenal with a balloon and pull it out through one of the slits. No heavy pain meds for him. His replacement medication seems to be working well. The doctor has released him for tomorrow morning. His wife will pick him up in the morning and they will head back home to recover for the next couple of weeks. What a relief that it is over!
