Surgery Update!!

Reid is out of surgery, and it went pretty well. The doctor removed his whole prostate, and he believes that the cancer was still intact...which means that it has not spread. He also went ahead and removed his lymph nods just to make sure(even though he said that they looked cancer free!). The used a robotic arm to do the surgery and it accidentally pinched his colon, so he actually has to have a few stitches put in as well as a colonoscopy to make sure that they didn't poke a hole in it. He has been in recovery for the past 4 hours, and is not doing well at all. He is in A LOT of pain, really nauseated, and extremely paranoid. They won't let him get a room until he is doing better, which we hope will be soon. UPDATE: He is in a private room, and is on a morphine drip so he is feeling GREAT

I wanted to know if anyone would be willing to do a freezer meal for my parents, I know that it would really serve my mom to not have to cook dinner for them, They are pretty easy to please when it comes to food, and it is just the two of them. I wanted to take them to them Wednesday night(which I know is late notice) but I could also take them to them Sunday after church.
