Good News!!!

I am so sorry to be this late posting, but it has been one wild and crazy day! Can you believe a big city hospital with no WiFi? Well, I was stuck in one today! As much as I hate to, I may have to break down and get a wireless card so that I won't be stuck in a situation like this again.
They didn't take Mom into surgery until 11:55. They told us it would take at least two hours. At 1:00 a nurse came out and said ya'll need to come to the consult room so the doctor can speak to you. We were all pretty freaked out, thinking the worst, but when he came in he said that everything went much more smoothly than they had expected, that he had got it all and there was no evidence that it had spread. Thank you, Jesus! There IS power in prayer.
When I finally left the hospital at 7:00 PM, Mom was speaking coherently (in spite of the morphine!) and asking for a rib eye steak, rare. It will be several weeks till she can have solid food, but you can bet when she gets the go ahead there will be one whopping rare rib eye waiting for her!
There are not enough words to express the gratitude that I have for everyone that took the time to say a prayer for my Momma. Well done, ya'll!
P.S. When I printed off all the prayers and well wishes it was 3 pages and I took it to the hospital. Momma has it on her bedside table and has informed all of the nurses that she has people all over the world looking out for her! Thank ya'll SOOO much!!!
