Leo had emergency surgery on Sunday morning. The cyst on the pancreas burst and ruptured his spleen, so they removed both the cyst and his spleen. The surgeon told me going in that he might not make it.

It's been an awful 10 days but I think the worst is finally behind him. He is still in ICU but I have finally been given some hope that he's going to make it.

Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers - they have meant a great deal to me.

Go right now and tell your husband you love him as the opportunity to do so can be taken away in a heartbeat.

I went through kidney cancer surgery with my husband a year ago so I understand the tenuousness, fear, and helplessness you must be feeling--big strong man seemingly so fragile. Hang in there, Irene. This is almost over and you will have him home soon. I'll hold you and Leo in my thoughts. Thanks for the update. Hug.
