My aunt is in surgery...still. Probably got another 2 hours. I hate cancer and what it takes away from us.

    Surgery
    Hi : I wish your Aunt the best. My prayers will be with her.
    Cancer is so unpredictable. My Mom died in March with colon cancer.
    I do my Cat scan and kidney function test on Dec. 1st, for Non-Hodgkins follicular Lymphoma stage 4.
    So always something to keep your nerves on edge, I really hope everything will come out well for your Aunt.

    not done
    10:30 now and she's still in surgery. Hopefully they are getting finished soon, they moved the family to another waiting room to talk to the doctor.

    9 Hour
    Well the 6 hr surgery took 9 hrs, but they got all the cancer and was able to do everything they wanted to do. They are keeping her on a respirator for 24 hrs. Hopefully she had a restful night.

    Horray
    So glad to hear and I hope she has a smooth recovery and all goes well. I'll be saying some prayers. How are you holding up? Sometimes I get so tired of everything being about cancer. I've been supporting a good friend whose husband has recently been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It's been so rough for them. URGGG I wish it would all go away for all of us. Mary
