Murphy Update

Murphy went in for surgery this morning. They were trying to remove (by laser) some of the tumor that was blocking his urethra. Only problem is that when they got in there with the ultrasound, they could see that the tumor wasn't actually blocking anything. So, his urgency to urinate is probably just because of the presence of the tumor. They removed what they could of the tumor, but we'll just have to wait and see if the symptoms are relieved or not. The good news is that the medication he started on a few weeks ago (before we even went to the oncologist) seems to be helping a little bit.
