Update on Rick’s Magical Surgical Tour

Okay. So after a loooong day that started with a two-and-a-half hour delayed surgical start time and close to six-and-a-half hours of actual surgery I’m happy to report that Rick’s reconstructive surgery to become Rachel was a success. Happy birthday girl!

Oh. Wait.  That’s not right. Sorry, wrong patient.

Okay. So after a loooong day that started with a two-and-a-half hour delayed surgical start time and close to six-and-a-half hours of actual surgery I’m happy to report that Rick is out of the OR and in ICU. His surgeons said that, while long, the surgery went well, with no complications. They removed a pebble-sized tumor and did not see any evidence that the cancer had spread (barring biopsy results of course).

He will remain in ICU for probably another day or perhaps two before being moved to a regular room at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank.

More news as his situation improves . . . or if I as his friend feel like making something up. (The boy’s gonna need to change his password quick.)  So everyone THANK YOU for the prayers, well wishes, good thoughts, etc.

  1. Glad to hear! Thank you to his trusty sidekick, who shall remain nameless. You are a pretty creative writer yourself. Hopefully the tumor they removed is the only cancer.
