And… We’re done.

Alright everyone we’re done. Surgery is done. Mom is out. All is well.

Collective letting go breath.

So I know I said this would be one step shy of live tweeting the surgery updates, but I can tell you had I live tweeted – this is what it would have consisted of, “Status update from the OR – still in surgery, call back in an hour” and repeat, and repeat, and repeat. For many many hours. To say it was a long day would be an understatement.

Sorry to everyone that may have been freaking out, but I didn’t think “we still know nothing” would be terribly helpful.

We’ve spoken to Dr. Law, who btw has lovely bedside manner. He started with the ending – it’s over and it went well. They have clear margins. And to me that means the Boy was right – as of this moment Mom is cancer free. It got the picture that it was not welcome at our party, and it has fucked off.

So that’s the good news. And for now I’ll leave it at that. More details to come but first – I’m so hungry I need to eat.

Thank you to everyone again for all of your positive thoughts prayers and finger crossing messages all day long.

Love you all.

  5. Whew! Wonderful to get this best possible news first thing in the morning! Should have looked last night but you said morning so I didn’t push. Today you can all try to relax -not an easy thing to do when you have been so “up tight” for so long. Our best wishes to Carol as she starts the long road to recovery after such big surgery.
