Out of surgery!

Good News! It was a long morning, but just got word from the doctor that Tina has finished surgery and he said she did awesome!

The procedure basically entailed making a small initial cut in her left side about 6 inches or so below the arm, and scoping it to see if he could visibly spot the tumor. He was not able to do so as it was buried a bit inside the lining of the lung, so he had to enlarge the opening. He was then able to cut out the small tumor, and took out a healthy margin around it of clean tissue. He was very happy with it, and said the procedure went very well...

As of now, she is currently recovering in the Intensive Care Unit so we have yet to be able to see her, but hopefully within the hour. She will stay in ICU for 24 hours or so, and then be moved to a room which will be her new home for the next 3 or 4 days...

Anyway, good news from this end. Once I talk to TJ, I will drop you all another quick update...stay tuned...
