All good

He did it! Jay is fresh out of surgery, doing great!!! Here are my notes from my post-op talk with Jay’s amazingly gifted surgeon, Dr. Bains.

Thanks for all of your good thoughts this morning. They helped! Also, stay posted for more visiting times later on today (this guy has so much support, all of the times filled up within 2 hours!).

Love and gratitude,
KR

    You amazing twosome! When can we come today? Karen

  14. Great News! Well done Jay. Thanks for keeping us posted!

  15. Good news, Katie.

    “Vitals during surgery – great!”

    No doubt due to Jay’s strong physical and mental health, your love for each other, and his listening to the caring voices of friends while out, but not out. How generous of Jay to invite people to share of themselves during this experience.

    Dear KR

    Thanks so much for the bulletins, very happy to get the latest and know that Jay is in such good shape and such good hands.

    We are currently in California and will be here for the whole of this month so will not easily be able to come and see you guys at MSK but our thoughts are with you and it’s good to know that the visiting schedule slots are like the best tables at Union Square Café.

    Hoping to see you soon Betty and John
