My mom underwent surgery yesterday to remove the sarcoma tumor in her ankle. The final two rounds of chemo accomplished more than we thought they would, and her doctor was very pleased to tell her that he had saved her leg from amputation. We were all very pleased to hear that! 🙂
I came home in time to spend a few days with Mom before her surgery. She has recovered so well from her scare just two weeks ago, and she was able to walk and enjoy the beautiful spring weather with us all.
Her surgery went smoothly, but she was very slow to wake up. Due to the coronavirus, only one person could go with Mom to the hospital, so my poor dad spent all day waiting for her to come around. It was a long day, but certainly a blessed one.
We still don’t know the status of the spots on her lungs, and of course we have to wait and pray that the cancer hasn’t metastasized, but for this moment she has successfully cleared quite a hurdle.
Thank you for your prayers, texts, and emails. We are so grateful for the love and encouragement, and I know that your prayers have propelled us to this successful surgery.
