My Mom is doing great and ready to leave the hospital following successful laposcopic surgery for stomach cancer. Pathology report came back clean. A couple of hurdles over the last two weeks but at age 87 that was to be expected. She will be going to a care center for rehab to continue rebuilding her strength before returning to her independent living condo. Heartfelt thanks to my cyber family for your thoughts and prayers and a special thanks for Tim's prayer list. For those of you unfamiliar, my Mom was told to go home and enjoy her large family as long as she could because surgery wasn't an option. Her children could not think of sitting by and seeing our Mom in pain so we persisted. We knew we had Siteman Cancer Center here locally and were willing to travel to Mayo in Rochester. Prayers were answered.....NEVER GIVE UP!
