Casting Off Anxiety

I am writing this while sitting by my Mom's hospital bed. We did so enjoy our slumber party last night at a nice hotel! It was such fun, we are going to have another tonight at a surgical center! OK, neither of us were really that much fun last night. We were both exhausted and went to bed early, getting a solid night's sleep. That doesn't usually happen at a slumber party I guess.

Mom told me before her surgery that she'd given some of her friends (hi to the NutraSystem ladies!) the link to my blog so they could learn how she's doing. 

She's doing GREAT!

Her surgery took about 4 hours and if it were not for the wonderful pain meds I expect she'd be quite miserable right now. However, she is not miserable and she is reporting that she has almost no pain. Her nurses and her doctor have been wonderful! They have made comments both about how tough she is and what an easy patient she is for them. 

We don't know all the biopsy results and such, but we still have hope that she has been cured of this cancer with just the surgery.  She has prepared herself if the biopsy results do not show this to be true, though, and she seems to have a sense of peace and calm. I do also. 

I know that Mom really appreciated knowing she had so many friends and family supporting her through this. I just want to say thank-you to all of you for that. I'm sure she will soon be back to posting on Facebook and she can tell you all about this. For now, I just wanted you to know she is doing very, very well.
