~Recovery Time~

The surgeon just finished talking to Gerald and Mom. Jan is in recovery now. She is awake, but sleepy. She did really well during surgery and he removed all of the tumor. The tumor showed dead tissue, but also some activity, which is what the PET scan showed. It will be a few hours before she gets out of recovery. She will not be in ICU, but in a room but will have a nurse who is only caring for her. She should move to a regular room tomorrow and get to come home Friday or Saturday.

It is our understanding that there has always been some activity at this site. The surgeon said since there is activity, they will be changing her treatment. We will know more about what comes next either the end of this week or the first of next week.

Please continue to pray that she recovers well and no problems arise from this surgery. Pray also that the next treatment is one that is well tolerated.

Mom will update me again when she has news or when they get to see Jan.

Thanks for all your prayers and support.

I'm so happy to hear the surgery was well tolerated by Jan. I am praying that they got everything and with the change in treatment this is in her best interest. I am checking over here all the time and lifting Jan up in prayer. I am praying for your family to have peace and good news.

Thank you Lord that she tolerated the surgery so well! Praying that what little bit of activity they see can be handled by the change in treatment. Continuing to lift her throughout recovery. Praying for continuing good news.
