Out of Surgery

My mom is out of surgery...overall things went well. They did find a spot of cancer in the 1st lymph node and so then took out a group of about 13. They will need to further test those nodes to determine how far into the system any cancer has progressed. We're praying that it is only in that 1st one. We won't know about the long term treatment plan (chemo) until probably early next week.

We just got the call that we can go see her in about 20 minutes. Will update later...thanks for your prayers and thoughts.

Dad and I just ate a TERRIBLE lunch at the cafeteria...UGHGHGH! So glad I don't have to eat that food everyday!

Sorry to hear about the lymph node involvement. We've been thinking of you and your family all morning and praying for comfort and strength for all of you.

I'm glad that the surgery is over and you're headed over to hug on her. Wish I was closer to make you some of my southern cooking!

Thanks for the update, will pray that the lymph node involvement will only be that first node. Keep us posted and give Judy our love!
