We received a shocking phone call a week ago Tuesday.
My 81 year old mother was diagnosed with colon cancer.
The first hurdle we had to cross was a CT scan to see if the cancer had spread to her liver or lungs.
It has not. Tiny celebration.
Surgery was then scheduled for last Friday to remove the tumor. All went well. Tiny celebration.
Next hurdle was waiting for the pathology report on whether the cancer had penetrated the colon wall or invaded the lymph nodes. We found out yesterday that it had not. Tiny celebration.
Now we are in the healing process. The intestines go into "sleep mode" when they are traumatized such as a reconnect surgery would do.
Hopefully things will start working again soon.
Once that happens and Mom is home and doing well we will have a BIG celebration.
Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, prayer and emails.
Please continue to pray for my mother - Millie.
From my Heart,
