Dr. Baimeedi did a wonderful job. The surgery was successful; tumor removed, now it goes on to pathology.
Initial indication is showing the tumor is malignant, which the doc made sure we understood this is not great news, but at least for now he lives to see another day.
Doc says he will probably be able to go home tomorrow (yes I said that correctly).
Then from there we wait for up to 48 hours until we hear back with news from the pathologist.
