Nervous and frustrated [More:] Mom is in surgery having lung cancer removed. My brother is at the hospital. I'm bouncing around the house because I just couldn't take waiting at the hospital.

Cheering up would help.

She went in at 7:30 and it's now 1:43. She just got out of surgery. The doctor said they removed the entire lobe of the lung. They checked the lymph nodes (I guess in the general area) and while they looked fine, they still cleaned them up. Which meant removing any node that might have been compromised. She's being brought to ICU now. The surgeon said that everything went very well and that she should make a full recovery.

Since it was done with a minimally invasive technique, two laporoscopic robots, she should be out of the hospital by Friday. To me that's fracking amazing.

Thanks for your concern folks. Love to all the bunnies.

Glad to hear it went well, Splunge. Treat yourself to something good for dinner tonight, you deserve it.

I assume that they will biopsy the nodes that they removed. . . .

Yay for robots! Glad that it went well. And yes, take care of yourself.

In the meantime - here is a glowing kitteh.

If you would like for me to send you a cheer-up plushie, I totally will do it.

Wow that is scary and am glad you had a good report! Yay. Big hugs

danf, yes there is a whole bunch of... ah... stuff that will be scrutinized. It's part of the procedure.

TrishaLynn, you are truly a sweetheart. But no thank you very much. I'm probably going to bring the plushie turtle to the hospital tomorrow along with flowers and whatever I happen to think of. Again, thanks for the thought though. You rock.

Once again, thanks to all of you for your thoughts and hugs. You guys are great.

BTW this is the main guy that did the surgery. Dr. Richard Lazzaro.
