surgery - done!

I am sooooo happy to be writing this to you! Monica has gotten out of surgery, and her doctor was very positive. Basically, he removed the one big tumor that was causing the most problems with breathing, it was in fact eating into the chest wall, which meant there were some nerves that needed to be sacrificed. There were 4 other sizable tumors he removed, and all in all took 1/3 of her left lung. They've sent it all to pathology, and will know for sure what the source is in 5 days. Monica is headed to recovery now and will be watched very closely. Thank you for your wonderful wishes and prayers. I will keep the reports up and let everyone know when she is open for visitors! - Jennifer
