update :: all is well

waiting

Thank you so much for your prayers and warm healing thoughts. Rainer's surgery went well. They removed the stranded catheter from his heart and we are home and safe. I so appreciate all your support. Now we have a nice sense of "closure" to the cancer and are so happy to be moving forward.

Here are a few scenes from before and after. In between he was having surgery (a cardiac catheterization actually), lying flat afterwards for 4+ hours, and sleeping and having popsicles.
