Nervous...

Just thinking of my dad right now. At this very minute he's in surgery to reduce his prostate. Very strange surgery involving laser, but will alleviate some issues he's had and will enable him to stop taking two medications. Unfortunately, this isn't an everyday surgery so I've already prayed for the doctor as well as for my dad. He had to go off of blood thinner medication to do this so I pray for no clotting, no infection, etc. etc. He gets to go home tomorrow, but I'm nervous and a worried daughter today! It's not easy or pleasant being an adult child worrying about your parents...

**Update: He did really well with the surgery. Should go home tomorrow. Hopefully, daily life will be better for him now. Although he is a man that NEVER complains. Guess I didn't get that personality trait from him!

Thinking of you and your dear sweet dad. My dad is a prostate cancer survivor. I'm glad the surgery went well. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I am so glad he is doing well. I hope the recovery is quick. He is lucky to have a caring daughter to help him through this. :) xoxo
