Good update:
Been meaning to update this since yesterday but she got back home yesterday and is doing well on recovery. The surgery went very well and she just needs to force herself to take it easy for the next couple of weeks and then she can go back to work.

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. I'm a big believer that every bit of that helps.







My mom has battled with a rare skin cancer for 15 yrs now. Now she has more cancer and is having it removed today at noon EST. They have to put her under for hrs and cut away the cancer and then do a skin graft to reconstruct areas that need it. She has to stay in the hospital for at least 5 days.

Even though we've been dealing with this for yrs, it never gets any easier when she has surgery. It's always very scary and I know it's very traumatic for her.

It makes me feel better to know that people out there are praying and thinking of her. Thanks in advance.

Lots of thoughts and prayers your way. I can't imagine how hard it is for this to go on for such a long period of time. My mom had lung cancer and had a lobectomy and 2/3 of her right lung removed last may. It was a very difficult time. Sugeries and recoveries are so difficult to watch someone go through

I'm so sorry she and you and your family have to go through this. I lost my daddy to cancer a few months ago and it is very difficult to stand by and watch them go through everything. I will be sending up a prayer for her.

Thanks ladies. It means a lot. I will let you know when she's out of surgery. My dad and his dad (my gpa) are there. It's hard too bc I can't be there. She lives only 30 mins form me but the hospital is a few hrs away. She has to go to Shands teaching hospital bc it's such a rare cancer. I spoke to her father this morning and he is going to try to visit her this weekend and I think her brother is too. She despises laying around so she gets so antsy in a hospital bed. At least she likes crosswords. Another thing is she can't stand taking off of work. She's a pre-k teacher but it is what it is. I know she'll be happy again when she's recovered and they give her the clear to start working out again. She loves jogging.

I'm so so sorry for your losses BobbieJo and Kyla

Thanks again for the thoughts and prayers

She's out of surgery and doing well. Dad says she'll have to be on strict bed-rest for 3 days which I figured since the Doctor already said pre-surgery she would have to stay in the hospital for 5 days. I am so happy she's ok. The older I get, the harder these surgeries are for me. The longer I'm a parent the more I appreciate her and to loose her would be Earth shattering for me and everyone else who loves her too.


Thank you all so much for your T&P.




ETA: She called me a few mins ago and sounds very good and in good spirits. Says that she's too nauseous to eat though which is understandable. So good to hear her voice.
