Today we found out that Dale will not be able to have the second surgery to stabilize the posterior spine tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, he has a fever and a few other issues that the Doctors want to monitor and improve upon to give him the best possible outcome. Although it was a bit disappointing to hear, it's better to have him as close to 100% before he goes in for Part Two. Fortunately, at the moment he is stable and in no immediate danger, his fever has been slowly decreasing and he is on antibiotics that are helping. There is no set date for the second surgery but we are hopeful that it will be soon. Knowing Dale, i'm hoping to hasten his recovery with a bribe for unlimited Andy Capp's Hot Fries once he gets better.
To all of Dale's wonderful friends from HHH East and Boston College: Thank you for dropping off all the great photos, collage and cards. Ruby was able to read a few of the cards before he fell back asleep thinking of you guys I'm sure. Let's keep rooting for Dale and please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
