Wish I Could Take The Pain Away

I talked with my mom a few minutes ago and she said both during and after my dad took a shower today, he was in a lot of pain.  It hurt him (first) just showering, then was painful while drying off and the need to bend, etc.  I really wish I could conjure up something magical to take away the pain he feels.  My mom did say that he has a "squishy" little pillow that he puts in the area when he is in bed which helps and he decided to use that today while laying on the couch.  She said it did give him some comfort.  He took medication last night to help him sleep but it didn't do the trick.  I hope he will be able to start sleeping better and if it is stress or anxiety that is causing him not to sleep, I pray he can be comforted and know that everything will be ok.  Hopefully after next week, all will go as we hope, and the tumor will be removed.  I know recovering from any surgery is painful, but each day the body feels better and better. 
Happy Father's Day (tomorrow) to all the dads out there!!!
