Thankfully, all went well with Papa's surgery. My sisters and I went to see him right after he got out from his 8+ hour surgery and he looked surprisingly well. So much better than seeing him the first time around. He's working on recovering now and of course, is miserably sore. The nurses tease that he is a cheap date because the medication he takes can put him to sleep for a good bit. Poor guy is all discombobulated because of the medicine. He's been telling stories about waking up in China and being able to speak Chinese fluently or worrying about why the nurses had camped in a tent in the ICU. It's silly and heart wrenching at the same time. Thanks for all of your well wishes! I've felt the prayers so strongly and it has resulted in such a feeling of peace.
With much gratitude,
