One of the first comments from Cari shortly after surgery was...................Mom, have you posted my blog yet? Cari may have lost a tumor from her brain but has not lost her spirit and sense of humor.
It was an early rise this morning and off to the hospital at 5AM (and without coffee!!!). Surgery was scheduled for 7:30AM, however, the incision was not made until 9:30AM. Cari jokingly said that it took so long to get her all hooked up with wires and tubing because she had so many brain cells to be attached to. I guess she felt she had some bragging rights. On a more serious note Melvin was being updated throughout the surgery and they finally finished at 4:00PM. They removed the tumor and preliminary results are that it is the breast cancer kind. The final pathology report should be completed by mid week. Course of treatment will be decided by an oncologist, but most likely radiation.
We were all just so relieved and most of all thankful for the successful surgery. And an added bonus was to see her "smile "and fiesty spirit.
I'm sure as soon as Cari's head stops hurting, she will be back on the computer posting her blog. I expect that to be very soon.
As a mother, I would just like to express my sincere gratitude for everyone's prayers, comments and support. She is truly blessed with the true Body of Christ!
