A full day at Mayo yesterday - three surgeons, a trip to prosthetics and a pathology report.
The sarcoma was 9 cm by 5 cm by 5 cm. The margins were narrow, but clear.
All surgeons agreed that he could ditch the immobilizer, which didn't seem to be helping much anyway, and instead sent him to have a specialty brace made.
With this new development, he'll get to leave the care center and come home - hopefully tomorrow.
There are pros and cons to this.
Pro - He's home.
Con - We have stairs. Not just upstairs downstairs, but "oh you'd like to actually get into the house?" stairs.
Pro - Family dinners.
Con - He's the better cook.
Pro - Night time snuggles.
Con - We are both so terrified that somebody might actually touch that leg, that we may well need Trump construction to come in and build some sort of impenetrable wall right down the middle. So, yeah, no snuggles, but at least we can binge-watch Netflix together.
