Surgery is Complete and Hope is High

First of all, thank you everyone for all the kind words, prayers and well wishes.  I'm sorry I am behind reading your blogs but do know I will be back to them soon.  Things, as you can imagine, have just been a bit crazy.  If this last week didn't give me an ulcer, I don't think anything will, ha ha.

Yesterday was Amy's surgery and her gallbladder was removed.  In light of the circumstances, I think it went very well!  They were able to do it laproscopically and she refused to stay in the hospital overnight so we are in our San Diego studio that she has to rent for her work.  The doctor said he didn't see anything else inside that looked like cancer and can't even be certain what they found in the gallbladder is cancer.  There was a "sludgy mass" about an inch or so in diameter in the gallbladder and they are sending it out to pathology and results should be in in about a week.  So, I am hoping it's not even cancer.  Wouldn't that be amazing?  My optimism is working overtime. 

So, we are heading back up to Joshua Tree today and are just going to relax this weekend. 

The shop is almost completed and I'll have a post soon of the progress.  It's being sheet rocked inside today and I get to move stuff inside this weekend!  Looking forward to a worry free, relaxing weekend.  I hope the weekend is also good for you all.


  1. Glad to hear the surgery went smoothly and that a hospital stay was NOT needed. Continuing to pray for you both, let us know ASAP about the pathology report, praying it was just the beginning of stones and not a tumorous mass.

    HUGS to you both,
