11:30 PM THURSDAY MAY 19TH, 2011
Jeff is out of the operating room after a 2 1/2 hour spine surgery. He will remain in the ICU overnight where they will monitor his blood counts. He was in a considerable amount of pain after the surgery but they are working on getting the right cocktail to keep him comfortable. After they woke him up he managed to tell his spine surgeon that he "looked dapper!" which got a smile and chuckle from his team of doctors. Throughout this terrible fight against the BIG "S" (Sarcoma) Jeff has still managed to keep his amazing sense of humor. We hope he will be stable for transfer to his usual room with a view on the 21st floor tomorrow. Thanks for all of the emails, texts, love and support.

Just a quick update for all of you...Jeff is headed to the operating room in the next few minutes (It's now 3:30PM) for emergency spine surgery as he has developed thoracic spinal cord compression due to the growing tumors. I will keep you all updated.
