..And Another Miracle!!!

..after the surgery the doctor came into the consultation room to talk to me...as is protocal. I am used to the routine of it all by now. He walked in extending his hand to me with a huge smile on his face!!

He said that Don's throat looked so well, it almost did not look like Don's throat!!! His varaces were greatly reduced in size and pressure and that instead of the 12 spots he was expecting to see, he only saw 3!!! He banded those 3 spots off and told me that we are done!! Yeah!!

So - what is next?

Well, on Monday we have an appointment with the transplant doctor in Houston. This doctor is also the one who supervises his chemotherapy. We will know more after that appointment about when he will start the 6 month round of experimental chemotherapy drugs.
