He is out of surgery

He is out, talking, and moving. He will be transferred to ICU in the next hour or so. All went as expected. We won't know if it is benign or malignant for a few days, but is was a tumor.

The area of the brain affected was the sensory area, so time will tell how feeling has or has not been affected on his right side.

Please keep up the prayers.


  1. Neal, thanks for posting this. I've been on pins and needles all day. I'm so relieved.

  2. Praise God that the surgery was a success! We will keep praying for a complete recovery. Thanks Randi for those texts you keep sending to Loryn!!!

  3. Thanks for keeping us up to date. We got messages through Randi through Josh to Joe who called us. Did they get all the tumor?
    We are rejoicing all is well so far and keeping on praying.
    Love ys,

  4. Excellent update! Your colleagues at ConocoPhillips Alaska are very happy to hear that Tony is out of surgery and we continue to keep him and your family in our prayers.
