It has been the longest week of our lives since Peg was diagnosed. Surgery is over.It lasted from 2Pm -5PM. At about 6PM the doctor came and spoke with us. There were no surprises, thank the Lord! The tumor was removed along with about 1 ft. of colon. The cancer has not spread beyond the liver. Another bit of great news! A port was put in so she is ready to go once chemo begins. The doctor is hoping to begin treatment in about 2 weeks but this will depend on how she heals from surgery.
It's strange how nervous I was once we were told the doctor was ready to speak with us. You're waiting for it all day but when the time comes you're almost afraid to hear what will be said. In this case it was a relief to hear the news that it had not spread.
Peg was finally brought up to her room at about 8:30. There was no way we were leaving until we could see her. Even if she doesn't remember it made us feel better to see her. All she asked is, "Is it good news? Did they get it all?" Hopefully, that made her sleep a little better.
