Update on Mom

Mom's surgery went very well although it was a longer procedure than anticipated. The surgery went well and lasted 5 1/2 hours, the preliminary report is that is 'Papillary Carcinoma', thyroid cancer. That diagnoses has been suspected all along but until surgery was done they weren't positive. Mom is doing really well, looks good and is talking well. The surgery inhibits the voice slightly and causes a slight hoarseness that will go away. She will have to have Radiation in a few weeks, although right now she is just happy to be through the surgery! The plan is to discharge later today, we're looking forward to taking her home!

Thanks for all the prayers and well-wishes, we sure appreciate them.

I was glad to read the good surgery report. Please give greetings to your Mom from me and let her know she is in my thoughts and prayers.

Glad you can update your blog down there. =) We're still praying for Aunt Jan. I'm glad she's doing okay, and I hope the radiation in a few weeks goes well too.
