Kel M Posted December 23, 2004 Share Posted December 23, 2004 Hi all, I haven't been around much lately, but I wanted to take the time to update you all on Mom's condition. Mom has been living with a blood clot in her lung for four months now. So long as her x-rays and scans stay clean, the plan is for her to have major surgery to remove it sometime in February or March. We're keeping all extremities crossed! Mom visited with her oncologist last week and was immediately referred to a surgeon due to a growth at the top of her leg (groin area). Needless to say we were very worried it was her lymph nodes. She had surgery on Tuesday and I'm very happy to report that it was a hernia - and nothing more! So, here it is December 23, one year after diagnosis and Mom will be enjoying her 59th Christmas! There could be no greater gift. I also want to thank each and everyone of you for your gift of caring for others - most of whom you know only as a name on the computer. Please know that whether or not we have exchanged greetings, your indomitable will, your courage and your optimism inspire me daily. Best wishes to you and your loved ones. Here's to a happy and healthy 2005 for all! Kel Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
