The procedure yesterday went well, and didn't cause Cliff any more discomfort that he was already experiencing except for a sore throat.  I'll be heading back to the hospital in a few minutes.  
I finally realize the doctors don't quite know what to do with this case; all they can do is try one thing and then another, and hope something works.  They are only human, and they're doing the best they can.  I applaud their efforts.  I can sense the word "if" when they explain what they are doing, even though they don't say it.  I have heard them say "We hope..." a couple of times.  
I hope and pray Cliff's battered body will begin to heal so that he can regain his appetite and once again enjoy life.  
Yesterday while he was awaiting his latest procedure, he said, "I can tell, when the nurses touch me, which ones really care."  
God bless caring nurses.  
Meanwhile, I have to be careful where I touch him because so many places hurt.    
I do a lot of updating on Facebook because it's so easy to make a short statement there.  This entry is for my readers who don't have Facebook.

Will be following you both places on his progress! Hoping all is well and he begins to feel better soon. I think for two days or so he should feel rough at least that is what they say about surgery. Keeping all of you in my prayers.

Thanks for the update. Go Cliff.


Since I don't do Facebook I appreciate the update and so does everybody else. I know how preoccupied you are with what is most important right now and that is Cliff. I pray the health scare is behind him and that the healing can begin.

Thankfully, Cliff is a physically strong and healthy guy. We are all hoping for a quick(or if not quick a FULL) recovery for him. Sending you love!
