Journal entry by Carolee Pederson

Sharon's surgery went well.   They removed her bladder, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, urethra, and lymph nodes.  The surgeon found cancer in the lymph nodes.   Which is not what we all wanted to hear today.  

The type of cancer that Sharon has is called, Sarcomatoid Carcinoma. Which was found in her bladder a few weeks ago.  It is an extremely rare and very aggressive form of cancer.  

She is currently recovering before being moved to her hospital room.  We expect her to be in the  hospital for the next week. She is at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.  

Thank you for the kind words and support you have all given our family.   We really appreciate it.
