so he went into the hospital on friday (saturday here) to get the operation done. i called home that day to wish him well, even though all i got was the answering machine.
apparently, it didn't go well. my mother called me at what was 3am this morning for me to see if i'd gotten an email from my sister about it, which i hadn't checked that day because i was out in kobe. while the cancer hadn't spread, the operation that normally takes 3 hours took 7. this put a really bad strain on my dad's kidneys, and they stopped working. he should have been put in the ICU but there was no room so they kept him in recovery and tried to get his kidneys working. my mom said they had finally gotten them working again, but he was still really sick and in the hospital. everyone's there, except me of course.
at 3am when i was half asleep it didn't really sink in. but this morning i've been really upset. all i can really do is just wait for news, i tried calling people but no answer on anyone's phones. and now i'm at work of course, so there's not much i can do.
anyway, keep my dad in your thoughts i guess. i don't really know what else to say or do.
