Buddy Dean had lung surgery on 2/4/2020. Kelly Dean reported that the surgery took 4.5 hours and they removed an entire nodule that was cancerous. In the process a rib was fractured. She thanks everyone for thoughts and prayers.

Buddy is recovering from surgery and is home now. He had chest tubes removed today with next appointment on 3/2.
