Ray Herd today went into hospital for surgery to remove a Squamous cell carcinoma from within his jaw. The operation went really well and all surgery was performed through his mouth. This was a real bonus as it alleviated the need for any external incisions. The great news is that he is able to talk. As Ray had to have a section of his palate removed there was a possibility he would have difficulty talking. This is not the case and we will soon be hearing the dulcid tones of his voice,,,,,,great.
Ray is in Masada Private Hospital 26, Balaclava Road, East St Kilda Tel 03 9038 1300. He is not ready for visitors as yet, but we are hoping he will be by Monday.
He is expected home in the not too distant future, so if intending to visit at any time it is suggested you telephone first to maybe save yourself a journey. Visiting hours are from 2pm to 8pm
I will ring Kris Sunday night and get the latest info and post updates here.
