Thank you so much to everyone who kept my friend in their thoughts/prayers yesterday. The surgery was successful, my friend was really enjoying her meds last night! She's feeling the surgery more today. They did not get the entire tumor, and her left side was affected by the surgery, but it shouldn't be permanent. The concern was that if they did go for the entire tumor, they would have permanently paralyzed her left side. The doctor seems optimistic, although the pathology tests won't be back until next week.
This is so hard! There is absolutely nothing we can do, but it's so frustrating to have to just hope and pray. I know deep down that my friend will be okay, but I also can only imagine what she and her family are going through. Her mom is one of my mom's best friends so I know this is also really hard on my mom. She's really thankful that her kids are healthy.
That's the current update, I'm sure we won't know anything else until after the tests are done in the next week or two. But keeping my fingers crossed for good news.
Thanks for everyone's support! Now I have to find a way to use this as motivation to get my body healthier and stronger. I know that eating healthy and exercising isn't going to keep me from ever getting sick or having something major happen, but I figure it can't hurt. But right now making those changes are stressing me out and I retreat at night to food. Here's the thing about losing weight...I know what I need to do in order to be successful, but that doesn't make it any easier to do.
Those are my thoughts for today. Everyone be healthy and happy, and WARM!!
