It feels like now this is done its time to focus on new things. I’m not sure what those are for me but the feeling is there. I don’t feel like I’m trapped in a limbo full or worry anymore at the very least. Recovery time for my mom, something new and worry-free for me. Let’s see how this goes.
I spent most of my day sitting, and sometimes standing, around. That is what happens at hospitals, right?
Not much of a view, unfortunately.
My mom’s surgery was today and things went well. I think her biggest complaint of the day was that she couldn’t have coffee for half the day. Well, until she felt the pain post-surgery, but you expect that part to happen.
According to her surgeon things were as they expected and they were able to get the tumor and it didn’t look like there was any cancer beyond that in the lymph nodes. Great news!
Of course my mom will have radiation in just a week or so. She isn’t done with treatment but the most nerve wracking part is done. The part I was most worried about is over and all anxiety I had flooded away when the surgeon gave us a post op update.
Thank you all so much for the love and support sent to me and my mom. My mom appreciated all your thoughts and prayers – they really did mean a lot and they totally helped keep me rational and calm.
