Night before surgery

by sherry
Yesterday Terence was able to visit with his long-time friend Ed Goetz (a friend from 8th grade through high-school and his University of Wyoming dorm mate!).  Ed and his wife Sherry spent some time in Seattle with Terence & I .  Almost 23 years ago, we were present at the others' wedding so we all had a lot to catch up on.  Sherry and I were further lavished with old college stories! 

Terence was glad to be able to see his old friend.  Terence told me  "having good friends like that make me feel rich".

Tomorrow, we'll be at the University of Washington Medical Center where Terence will be undergoing 'Greenlight' laser surgery for quality of life purposes.   Though the surgery itself may be minor, the results we are praying for are far from it.                                                                                                                                                Hopefully the procedure will reduce the requirement of post operative catheterization and allow Terence to return to a semi-normal life.                                                                                                
We're not concerned about the surgery itself (Terence is in very capable hands)- but the end result- since there is a 50/50 chance it will be effective for Terence due the unknown- how much and exactly where the cancer is situated will determine the outcome and success of the surgery.

Days have been tough while waiting for the surgery so tomorrow can't come soon enough for him!

He'll be in at 7:45 am tomorrow and hopefully home tomorrow night!  Thanks for your prayers!!!
