This is Saundra's husband Joe. Her debulking surgery on Friday was a huge success! Surgeons did remove the spleen, but left the colon alone. Three small lesions on liver were removed. She's recovering at Baylor Medical in Dallas. The docs are saying "optimum results obtained."

I can't tell you how happy I am to hear those wonderful results! You must have been so elated when you were told. And I would imagine Saundra is pleased with the outcome as well. When a doctor calls it 'optimum results', that's extremely encouraging.

Thank you for taking the time to update all of us. Please tell Saundra we send our love a prayers for a quick recovery and to head home soon!

Monika, I'll relay your message. She's pretty groggy and sore, but I hope she can walk a little and use the toilet today. Joe

Monday morning, and she's doing much better. Will walk some today. She's much more alert, but still pretty sore. (No hugs!) - Joe
