We've had some bad news recently, FIL has a malignant tumor on a nerve sheath that needs to be removed. His surgery is scheduled for Tuesday morning early. He's in good health, especially for his age, but at 89yo surgery and recovery hold a lot of risks.

We're going over to see him tomorrow for a few hours then returning home. Dh will go over again on Tuesday to be there when he gets out of surgery. (I'm staying home for the plaster repair guys)

Any P&PT would be greatly appreciated.

Will be keeping your FIL in mind and sending P and PT for him for the surgery and beyond as he makes a recovery, and hopefully all will go well from there on in.

P & PT most definitely headed your way & to your FIL, Elspeth. Do keep us updated, please.

Thank you all for the P&PT. Good news so far: FIL did well during the surgery and is in recovery. Dh is down there now but won't be able to see him for another hour or two. I haven't heard anything else yet regarding the tumor etc. Please continue the P&PT because the immediate post-op period is also serious. I'll post more when I get more news.
