My mom came out of surgery at 1:30ish this afternoon. She had to have two lymphnodes (they do not think they were cancerous, it was a precaution only) and two lumps removed, but as of now, the doctor believes that they removed all the cancer, although more tests are probably going to have to be run to ensure this. They're still going to have to do radiation and chemo treatments, but in the words of Charlie Brown, "Life is easier if we just dread one day at a time." : )
Thank you for all of your support and prayers, this has been a difficult and stressful time in my family, and you have been a wonderful network for my mom to lean on. I'm sure that she will need you guys even more in the months to come.
