Surgery Today

Just a quick update to say they've taken Mom back for surgery.

She was in good spirits, making jokes. When they told her they were going to give her a cocktail of medicines, she said she was looking for a glass for her cocktail.

Estimated time is about 4+ hours.

We're staying at CTCA all day and will update when we have any news.

She will be here at Cancer Treatment Centers of America for 3-4 days.

Address: W., 14200 Celebrate Life Way, Goodyear, AZ 85338
Phone:(623) 207-3000

She will be in Room 206 later this evening.

After that, she will be moving to an assisted apartment:

Mountain View Adult Care Home
2651 E. Cinnabar Avenue
Phoenix AZ 85028

We'll let you know when she moves in there.

    She's out of surgery! Ovaries, fallopian tube, omentum and appendix removed. Nothing else needed to be removed. Some microscopic disease or "miliary" disease (sand-paper granule sized cancer) areas was left behind. This will be addressed with chemo after recovery. She has a feeding tube for now to keep her stomach from distending. She was anticipating a Thanksgiving dinner so we'll see Thursday what she can have. Might have to take a raincheck on that. We probably won't see her for at least an hour or more from now. Thank you for all of your prayers!!!
