plastic surgery

I know everyone has been waiting for an update. Tom' s wound looks great and is healing well. The plastic surgeon said he would like to do the skin graft surgery this week or next...we are just waiting for the schedule. Hopefully, we will have the date set tomorrow. Once we know when the surgery will be, we will determine whether he will stay at Fairlawn til the surgery or go home for a little bit until the surgery. After the surgery, Tom will be in the hospital for 5 days and then may go back to rehab for a few days depending on how he is doing. The total healing time for the skin graft if everything goes as planned is about a month. Yipee! Please continue with the prayers and well wishes...he still needs them. Love to all. :-)


  1. I am SOOO glad to hear that he is doing better! I hope he has some 'home time' before his next surgery. There doesn't seem to be anything that is more theraputic than being in familiar surroundings. I have been under the knife a few times for things that are small potatoes compared to what Tom's going through. But,"There's no place like home. There's no place like home..."

  2. Cheryl,
    I am keeping Tom, you and the girls in my daily prayers. We miss Tom and am thankful that he is doing better every day. I am sure you will all be glad to when he is home. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers. If I can be of any help in any way, please let me know.

  3. Tommy,

    Maybe you can get a discount and get those boobs you always wanted while the plastic surgeon is doing the skin graft...

    Bob Quinn says "Hi". I was hoping to see you today but wasn't sure where'd you be. Text me tomorrow.

    Much Love!


  4. Tom, keep up your great spirit and positive attitude. You are truly an inspiration to us all.
