Out of surgery!

Candice's surgery is over, and her mom says it went well (Hurray!). There were some enlarged lymph nodes which the doctor had anticipated and removed, but other than that, it sounds like the tumor had not spread to any surrounding tissue, which is very good news. While she was "under," they also inserted a port in Candice's chest through which she'll receive the chemotherapy.

Surgery sucks!!! So she'll feel like she was run over by a truck for at least a day or so, but then slowly she'll begin to feel better. Tonight Candice will probably stay in the hospital, and then she'll go to her mom's house to begin recovery. If anyone would like Candice's address to send cards, flowers, food, etc...please contact me: hibbert [dot] karen [at] gmail [dot] com.

Thank you all for your prayers and support.
