Hi Linda, Ro and all of you wonderful gals,
I was the one who wrote my 85 yr old mom was having a total hysterectomy for serous carcinoma uterine cancer., which was a shock really at her age., but as someone said cancer knows no age, young or old. Anyway, thanks for your ecouragement Linda and all of you, and my mom is doing great. She had her surgery march 12th and beginning last nite she was walking and today i walked with her a lot dragging her IV pole. I did not get a lot of information from surgeon on day of surgery. He is very nonchalant and sure of himself, i don't know what really, but he said all went fine and since her vital signs were good after being under anesthesia which we were concerned about he said he had time to test several lymph nodes but he didn't seem to think there was any spread, but who knows? She looks great and hardly has pain it's really unreal., Now i have to worry about her falling as she is trying to get up by herself when i'm not at the hospital. With older people that's what happens, the surgery went well but now i don't want her to fall. She's almost over confident, but i wanted to thank all of your for your support. I hope you all continue to do well and I want to continue to read your posts. You are all such good spirited and kind human beings.
Linda aka Cookie :)
