This was just posted by Terry so I just copied it and posted it here for all to read too. It is good news.
I'm just back from the hospital and John's second surgery today went very well. The surgeon was pleased with how the tissue looked and how the skin looked. There was enough skin left to cover the wound so no skin graft was necessary. He's still sedated and will be for the rest of today. They'll probably bring him out of it tomorrow and that's when the hard part starts for him. I've had three days now to adjust to his amputation...he isn't even aware of it yet. We've got a lot more to get through but every day we're one day closer to getting him back home where he belongs.
