Hello everyone,

Just popping in for an update about my FIL.

The surgery went well.
The surgeons removed his right kidney, a part of his intestines (and the malignant tumor) and placed/made a stoma.
Technically speaking it all went well but my father-in-law really had a difficult time during the surgerey. He also received two units of blood and is now in the ICU.
Visits are very limited and my MIL is now with him

There is a long way to go and the first few days will be very important..
We are hoping that he will find the strength to fight his way back.

Till soon;
