mamasbabygirl Posted January 10, 2006 Share Posted January 10, 2006 God and my mama that is... Wow, what a day. Mom came through the 4 hour brain surgery just great! The surgeon told us that he removed the necrosis and also found tumor there, so he did implant 35 brachytherapy seeds. He indicated that he did see that 2 of her old mets were growing, so he thinks there will be more surgery for her later, but it went great. We did get to see mom in NPCU and we had prepared ourselves for the worst. What we found was totally different. The ventilator was out and all she had on her face was oxygen. I told her that we are all so proud of her and she spoke "I'm pretty proud of myself." She was saying a few other things which didn't really make sense, but I found it totally amazing that she just had brain surgery and was talking. I am in awe.. My brother, SF and I agree that we will not tell mom about the other 2 mets until she is well on her way to recovery in rehab. I am so blessed to have God in my life, amazing me at every turn. Thanks for all of the prayers-they worked!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
