My aunt came through the surgery yesterday with flying colors. The doctor was very pleased with the results and said she was doing great. The doctor said it was cancer but she thinks that they got it all. Since there wasn't time with her being under for so long to remove the lymph nodes as well, she will have to have some radiation, but the doctor was very optimistic about all of it.
I got to see her for a while last night and while she's pale and has a sore throat from the breathing tube, she joked a bit with us. She's not looking forward to getting up and walking sometime today, but she knows it will speed her recovery. Her spirits have been really good through all of this and she managed to not cry longer than any of us.
This has been a lot of stress on my mom and she's been staying at the hospital the whole time with my aunt. She's exhausted, but will probably stay until my aunt is released (or she drops from exhaustion), hopefully tomorrow. I'm ready for her to come home for at least one night and get some much needed rest.
I really want to thank everyone for their prayers and well-wishes. It meant a lot to me knowing there were people praying and thinking of her and us. All the best to all of you and
