Jessie went in for surgery on Friday. They told her to be at the hospital at 6:00 am and they were finished by 4:20. The operation did not take long but the gazillion of tests they put her through took up much of the day. She came through with flying colors. Still waiting on test results on whether the cancer was completely excised. She was pretty tired when she got home but was upbeat while waiting for the expected nausea to kick in. Her house is stocked with all sorts of comfort food. We brought over mashed potatoes and gravy, as well as Kitty's peppermint brownies. Walt brought over his homemade chicken noodle soup. Amy came home with a package of Peeps. Guess which one she ate first. Still a long haul ahead of radiation and further chemo, but we're very optimistic.
Jessie's been documenting her journey on her blog Life is a Roller Coaster (ajdowd96.wordpress.com), where she gives frank updates on her condition. We're very proud of her. She's one tough cookie.
