My amazing, 89 year-old father has endured this past week, a successful 9-hour surgery for pancreatic cancer. He is exceeding everyone's expectations. His extremely gifted surgeon Neal Wilkinson at the University of Iowa Hospital, said my father is doing as well or better than his youngest patients have done during recovery after this surgery, and we are all expecting him to continue to improve as each day goes by.
My hope is that my father is able to play golf every day next summer! He deserves it after the year he's had.
And if you're wondering, he was also an amazing baseball player in his younger days. "Buckshot" pitched to Babe Ruth - how cool is that?
