Good news! Patti came through surgery fine and is FINALLY in a room!
BAD NEWS! The poor family had to wait until a room was cleaned and set up for her before they could see her. They weren't allowed to see her in recovery and then a room wasn't ready! Bless their hearts! They started their day at the hospital by 8 a.m. this morning and just now at 9 p.m. are leaving! That's the bad news. Could be worse, huh?
GREAT NEWS! The initial reports seem to be that the cancer HAD NOT spread to any lymph nodes! Praise the Lord! Of course, a more definite report will come from the pathologist in a couple of days.
We were told that as soon as she came out from under the anesthesia, she started crying and saying, "It's over, it's over!" Whew, I don't know why, but that made me tear up.
Thank you all so very much for your prayers and concern. Todd, Patti's husband, asked me to give you all a special 'thank you' just from him!
