UPDATE: surgery was successful! The surgeon was able to do the more minimally invasion version of the surgery that he wanted to do. She came through well. We’re just waiting for her to get out of recovery and move to a room. She’ll be here for a few days, but might be able to leave Wednesday or Thursday.
Today Mom is having surgery to remove a small cancer in the colon near the cecum and the appendix. Her blood work wasn’t showing cancer markers and CT scans didn’t show anything outside the colon so we’re hopeful that the surgery will take care of it completely.
Mom wasn’t feeling well, was anemic and had low B vitamin levels. The doctor ordered the colonoscopy. So this cancer was caught very early.
She’ll be going into surgery as this posts. I’ll be hospiblogging later to update.
