Mom's Cancer Update
Mom has been in Houston at MD Anderson since last Monday. She had to be at the hospital at 6:30 this morning (Tuesday) for surgery pre-work and her surgery was scheduled for around noon. The surgery was delayed until around 3:15 and she was starving since she wasn't allowed to have anything to eat or drink after midnight the night before. They performed a lumpectomy and it went well. They tested the lymph nodes and we will know the final results of those later but initial signs look good. She was out of surgery around 5:30 and into the recovery room after that. She was very hard to wake up after surgery; it took quite a bit longer than expected before she "came to" around 7:45. By 9:00 she was able to eat and sit up and watch t.v. but they are keeping her overnight. So all in all, the surgery seems to have been successful. Angela is with her and says that MD Anderson has been just wonderful to them and does an excellent job.
