My dad had his surgery yesterday, and thankfully it seems like everything went well! He'll be in the hospital for a week or so, but he is doing as well as we could have hoped for. With any luck all the tests will come back with good results and this will all be behind us.
The surgery did take longer than we expected, and sitting in the surgical waiting room for a full day is a nerve racking experience. Of course I brought yarn to help pass the time. I was very nervous, but I managed to make six chemo caps while I waited.
Today I took them to the nurse's station on one of the oncology floors in the hospital. I hope that some of the patients there might like them.
