    They just took her back. Radical mastectomy (double), followed by some reconstruction work. She'll be in the OR for around 6 hours, so I'll be sitting in this lovely waiting room with my laptop.

    One of our ministers was here before they took her to the OR, and prayed with us, and Mom feels very positive, very much at peace, and ready to get this all over with and on to begin chemotherapy.

    There is about a 20% chance that the cancer will be present in her lymphatic system, which we'll know at some point during the course of the surgery. Obviously, we're praying for that not to be the case.

    I appreciate all of your prayers and positive thoughts this morning.

    On a lighter note, my mom on Versed makes me grateful that she's never been a drinker. [​IMG]

    Praying for the doctors skilled hands to work quickly and safely.
    Praying for the time to go by fast for your benefit.

    Praying for a quick recovery and no cancer in the lymp nodes.

    Medicine has made great strides.

    Have faith. Even if there are positive lymph nodes, there is treatment.

    Keep hope alive and God bless you as you exercise your faith in Christ.

    Father God, thank You for being the Great Healer. Guide and direct the physicians. Give them wisdom and discernment. Bless this family and provide rest and peace. In Jesus' name, amen!

    I've been exactly where you are, sitting in the waiting room, waiting to hear how my mom is during the same surgery. She's five years cancer free now. I pray your mom has the same results. [​IMG]
