Christie's Surgery is Over

Hey all. Just wanted to update everyone that Chris' surgery is finally over. She went to pre-op and 11:15am and they finally took her to her room about 3:45p.

The Dr called down to us at halfway through her surgery to tell us that the tumor was not cancer..thank god! He came down to the waiting area about 2 and told us that the surgery went well and there was little bleeding. He did tell us that she had endometriosis really really bad so he had to do a full hysterectomy and take both ovaries. The endometriosis had passed through the wall and had started in her colon. He will not do any type of hormone therapy for at least 2 months so that it can heal in the colon and go away.

She was really out of it all day and slept most of it. Our son in law, Dusty is staying with her tonight, so Mac and I went back to their house to try to get some rest. We will relieve him in the morning.

Well, I need to get off and get to bed. Just wanted to update everyone that the surgery was successful and no Cancer.

Thanks so much for all your thoughts and prayers! You guys are the best!!

Try to catch you in chat tomorrow night.

Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

I am so glad to hear the news. Recovery won't be quick & easy, but thank God it wasn't worse!

I am so relieved for all of you. Thank God, no cancer. I went thru this 2 years ago although much older than she. My endometriosis was quite bad also. It will take time but she will recover fast due to her age.
So glad all the prayers worked!
Take care and my best to your daughter.
