Just a quick update!!!! GREAT NEWS - the pleural effusion was NOT MALIGNANT. In layman's terms the fluid that was building up around her lung did not have any malignancy in it. The Oncologist cannot explain why this happened, but for now we will take this as another win! Yesterday, we visited with the colon surgeon to remove the unwanted visitor in her colon, and her surgery is scheduled for August 25th at 10:30 am. They will remove about a foot of her colon. She will remain in the hospital for 1-3 days following the surgery, and then I will stay with her at her house while she continues to recover. My phone number is 775.343.9878 if anyone would like to contact me. I will continue to keep you all updated!
My mom is BRAVE; she is POSITIVE; she is FOCUSED; she is a FIGHTER and she is STRONG!
Cancer is only going to a chapter in her life, not the whole story!!!!
