To the Troops,
TJ is finally out of surgery and all went well. Dr. Cusack performed laparoscopic surgery to remove the mass in the colon without any issues. He will be in recovery for the next 2 hours and then moved to a room where we should be able to see him. The surgical team got a bit of a late start as the actual procedure began around 12:10 pm. Thanks again to everyone for so closely following Teej’s progress and rooting, cheering, texting, emailing, commenting, walking , running, donating

Again, many thanks to TJ’s Army as everyone’s ...

A picturesque scene that will surely get you salivating, yet, all of these items are absent ...

The pain meds also tamper significantly with your mood, perceptions and memories leaving reality as an intangible
