I've spoken with my dad a few times since his surgery. He was released from the hospital the day after it but has been staying at a hotel near the hospital to be able to keep his follow-up appointments.
He's hoping to see the doctor tomorrow and be told he can go home and to check back in a few months.
Already, even thought he is still recovering, his headaches have improved.
Thanks again to everyone who has shown care, concern, offered support and encouragement. Thanks to the people in my family who were there, keeping my mom company and making my dad laugh and smile.
It means a lot to all of us.
