Prayers for my elderly mom's surgery - UPDATE in first post

Halftime Hope

Recommended Posts

She's in VA with my brother's family, so I know she and dad are well-cared for, but this is still going to be hard for her. She's having a lumpectomy and they'll also remove two nodes, perhaps more depending on what they find.


The news last week was that the preliminary findings-probably a Stage 1, and very small lump--were very good.


She is a very active 82, and she and dad have eaten very healthily for at least 40 years, so this is a bit surprising.


Thank you for all the prayers and good thoughts.




UPDATE: She came through it well. They did find "a few" cancer cells in one lymph node, so they took three, and after the path report comes back, and the "tumor board" reviews her case, they'll have a discussion with her re. options.


Just wanted to update before my full day of tutoring starts. Thank you all so much for prayers for her. Please continue, b/c docs are concerned about blood clots. ??
