Update on Mom's Cancer

My mother's operation on Tuesday was successful in removing the cancerous portion of her upper colon. However, they also removed glands from two of her lymph nodes that the doctor thought looked suspicious. The subsequent biopsy revealed these glands to be cancerous as well.

So although Mom is feeling suprisingly well after the surgery, she is still facing several months of chemotherapy in order to get rid of the remaining cancer.

Her prognosis is still hopeful, and even though she was disappointed with the biopsy results, she is gathering her strength for the fight ahead.

So please, continue to include her in your prayers, as right now she needs them more than I do.
