Hi all, this is one of her daughters. She asked us to keep you updated on her progress...

They took mom down for surgery this morning around 6:30 and she was out around 3:30. She was in recovery for a couple hours, and into ICU by 6. We did not get to see her for more than a couple minutes because the visiting hours were already over. The doctor who performed her surgery said it went as well as could be expected. She did not have any complications during surgery. We'll be going back to see her during the next visiting hours. Please continue to keep my mom's recovery in your prayers. Thank-you!!

Mom did not have a good day or night. She was dealing with constant nausea and dry heaving until yesterday evening. They finally got this under control, but then her heart rate went up. After several tests, they determined she was bleeding into her abdomen. They took her into surgery around midnight to correct this and give her more blood. She was sent back into ICU after surgery on a ventilator. She has been extubated this morning and all her vitals are stable. The nurses said she is doing better, and is drowsy, but aware between sleeping. They expect her to be in ICU for a couple days. Please pray that she'll continue to get better and have no more set backs.

So sorry that your mom has experienced a few set backs. The chemo wash is more than likely the cause of the nausea.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her, you both, and your families. Wishing her a speedy recovery!

Thank you so very much for keeping us update on your mom. She is in our thoughts and prayers, as well as the entire family. My husband had lung resection 2/09 and now liver resection 4/29/09 so I understand. Give her my best wishes and pray that each day brings less pain and closer to recovery and going home.
Hugs,

Mom is doing sooo much better! She is feeling better, and her vitals have remained fairly stable. She's had all kinds of tubes and things removed, including her NG tube. She's not feeling any nausea, and her pain is still being managed pretty well. They moved her into a private room this evening. Hopefully she has a great night and continues on a great recovery! She thanks everyone for their support; I'll be bringing the laptop by tomorrow to read her everyone's comments :)

Sounds like she is doing better and I'm glad. She has been through quite an ordeal the last week. Bet she feels so much better with most of those tubes out of her, but we do know that they are there to help her. Let her know she is in my prayers and I hope she continues to get better each and every day so she can come on here and starting posting. Thank you for continuing to update us.

moxie and is a tough fighter and it has pulled her

Sorry for the absence in updates (this is still her daughter). She's been slowly but surely getting better. She has everything but her IV and an abdomen drain removed. They took her staples out today, I'm guessing too early. The lower half of her incision re-opened down through skin and subcutaneous layer. They gave her a wet to dry bandage that she'll be maintaining/changing at home. She is having diarrhea issues, which will hopefully be clearing up. The doctors say she is doing good, and hopefully she'll be going home tomorrow!!
