As many know, our mother Randi was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. It was found incidentally after her fighting spirit led her down a lengthy path of testing for a completely unrelated issue. That fighting spirit will undoubtedly carry her through surgery and back into normal life.
She is very fortunate in that the cancer is small, slow growing, well isolated, and relatively easy to remove. Surgery is currently scheduled for Monday March 23rd, and should be curative. This means that chemotherapy and radiation are not expected at this time.
Unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our mom will not be able to have any visitors the day of surgery or for the duration of her hospital stay. Additionally her care team has asked that she limit social interaction as much as possible leading into and coming out of the surgery/hospital stay.
This is hard for us and I'm sure hard for many of you who would like to see her and help her through this time. We as a family are still working out the details of our care plan, and will use this platform to provide updates on that plan and if/how you all can help as we move forward.
