Health & Wellness

I have happy updates to share today!

My aunt Kelly had surgery yesterday, which was wholly successful. In addition to her mastectomy and reconstruction, the surgeon removed five lymph nodes—all of which turned out to be cancer-free! Assuming her overnight stay in the hospital went well, she will be discharged today.

News came for Uncle Pete, as well. The radiologist called him personally to share results from Tuesday’s MRI. Are you ready for this???
The largest brain tumor has shrunk to half its size yet again, and the smaller tumors are virtually gone! Pete’s next appointment with the radiologist isn’t for another two months.
Lung and other tumors will be examined again soon; it’s unlikely those results will be quite as favorable, but anything is possible. We never imagined that the radiation would have been so effective with the brain tumors reacting as favorably as they have.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Just a random happy picture for a happy day!
