Dear Family and Friends.
    As many of you know , I am scheduled for a hysterectomy on Jan 30 at U of Penn because I have a big fat tumor on my left ovary..  While it is suspicious for cancer, the surgeon will not know for sure until he gets the pathology report during surgery.   I am feeling surprisingly ok now - just a little nervous about the recovery process..   I will be in the hospital about four days and then spend a few days at a friend's house.. Hope to return home to my cats and plants on Feb 8 when another friend will stay with me for 4 days.  We will keep you updated on this Caring Bridge web site which will relieve me of multiple calls and emails.. After Feb 11, I may need some folks to drop in and help me with stuff I can't do yet.  But one word of caution..  DO NOT MAKE ME LAUGH    Everyone I know who has had similar surgery said it takes several months to be able to laugh pain free.  Thanks to all of you who have already showered me with your love and concern and support.   Signing off for now but will try to keep you up to date..  Peace and love Sylvia 
PS  Thank you so much LouAnn for setting up and managing the Caring Bridge
