Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling had surgery following his cancer diagnosis, according to tweets from his children. On Monday morning, Schilling's daughter, Gabby, wrote: Dads surgery went really well! Now he's in recovery. #GodBless

  Schilling's oldest son, Gehrig, tweeted a photo of his father in a hospital bed with the word "recovery." Schilling announced last Wednesday that he has cancer, although he hasn't revealed which type. On Friday he tweeted: Overwhelmed at the well wishes, and prayers. Bless all of you. No pity or sympathy needed, I've been beyond blessed. I'm ready for this. Added Schilling: One more thing, the world goes on after you leave, change it while you're here.
